The first Korova Poetry night was a big success and there are more planned.

Upstairs in the café was full for the first ever Korova Poetry night which saw named performers along with an open mic.

Lorna Smithers, part of the huge team behind the night, said: “The first night was a big success. The top room of Korova was packed out.

“Flora Martyr, a young performance poet and film student at UCLan did a fantastic job of hosting her first event. Our headline acts, Yvonne Reddick, who is a Research Fellow at UCLan and Nicolas Guy Williams, who is a local poet and artist were both excellent.

“We had a great mixture of local performers, as planned mostly newcomers with support from some older faces. One poet, Maria Isakova Bennet came all the way from Liverpool.

“There was a good mixture of people in the audience too, including Korova regulars and students and staff from UCLan.”

Korova Poetry nights will take place on the last Wednesday of every month at 7.30pm.

The open mic slots will go fast so if you’d like a five minute slot, get down early.
