10th Birthday Celebration (and Anthology Launch)

A decade is a very, very long time in performance poetry, so this was a well-earned celebration. However, one despatch to Time Out’s letters page (24 Sep) found the show to be ‘a sickened, weakened thing’, thanks to ‘pollution by PCAs (politically correct attitudes)’. Proof that you can’t please all the people all the time.

The show doubled as the launch for the Popular Front of Contemporary Poetry anthology.
