Thurs 13th Sep: Save Preston Library Poetry Slam

Poetry Slam at The Kilburn Comedy Festival September 13

September 2012

The performance poets Tim Wells, Fran Isherwood and Chuquai Billy are pleased to appear as part of The Kilburn Comedy Festival. They will be at The North London Tavern, 375 Kilburn High Road, London NW6 7QB on Thursday 13th September, as part of an evening in support of Preston Community Library.

Tim Wells has taken his distinctive  brand of performance poetry all over the world. He’s toured the U.S 12 times and been translated into many languages including Chinese. He is a regular guest poet on Radio London and is Writer in Residence with’ Tighten Up’.

Fran Isherwood’s poetry is a wry, awry, word playful gallop through the vagaries of life encountering mail- stealing snails, lollipop ladies, Glam Rock, insomnia and macabre part time jobs en route.

Chuquai Billy is a Native American performer from the Lakota Sioux/Choctaw Nations. His material is friendly, funny and (mostly) historically correct with observations on life on Native Reservation, life in the UK versus the US and on current affairs.

They will be joined  by other quick-fire poets and the audience can judge the winner.

This not- to -be -missed evening starts at 8.00pm and tickets are £8 or £5 for concessions and Friends of Preston Community Library.

Tickets are available on
07773951099 or on the door.
