Poems, Puns & Pints - Friday 10th February
A Sutton Coldfield human rights group is putting the call out for comedians and poets to take part in its annual Poems, Puns & Pints night.
The royal town’s Amnesty International group is keen to hear from anyone who would like to perform at the event at The Station pub in Sutton Coldfield on Friday February 10.
Poems, Puns & Pints has become annual fundraiser for the group – raising money for the worldwide human rights work of Amnesty International.
Group chairman Andrew Hindle said they are also keen for as many people as possible to attend.
“Our Poems, Puns & Pints has become enormously popular over the years for performers and also for audiences,” he said. “We’ve had poetry, song, recital, comedy and even impersonation taking to the stage in the upstairs room at The Station pub.
“A number of previous Birmingham Poet Laureates have taken part in previous years and we’re delighted to announce that Birmingham Young Poet Laureate Matt Windle will be with us this year.
“If anyone would like more information about performing please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply turn up on the night ready to go. Audience members don’t need to buy tickets in advance, again just come and join us on February 10.”
The event, which begins at 8pm, is free to enter and audience members are asked to make a donation to Amnesty International. The evening will also include a raffle with a range of prizes and the chance to support human rights work by signing letters or a petition.
The Sutton Coldfield branch of Amnesty International meets on the second Tuesday of every month (except August) at 8pm at the Conference Centre, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 69 Lichfield Road, Sutton Coldfield, B74 2NU. New members are always given a warm welcome.
