Last Thursday of every month (except July & August)
Courtesy of Michaela Ridgway, our monthly poetry night showcases established poets’ work and amplifies up-and-coming voices.
Such a hit in 2012, Pighog is delighted that the popular series will continue throughout 2013. The events will take place on the last Thursday of every month from February to December (except July & August). And look out for our special events too including a special Valentine's event at Waterstones Brighton and another Anglo-American event at The Poetry Cafe London on April 17.
