We had just under twenty (human) attendees for the open mic, with several performers coming from as far afield as Cambridge and even Norwich! Now that is dedication to spoken word!
A big thank you to David Wright, the curator of the Wisbech and Fenland Museum for letting us use the venue, and thanks also to ADeC for their continued help and support. Finally, big thanks to Poppy for helping out with the refreshments - and for reading her beautiful poetry too!
