It is with great pleasure that VFD plays hosts to the event Poetry LGBT and its afterparty.

Andreena Leeanne started Poetry LGBT Open Mic Night in January 2015. Poetry LGBT is a warm and welcoming space for the LGBTIQ+ community to come together to share their experiences through poetry and spoken word. It is a vital and much needed space for us to share our creativity and express ourselves.

Come and enjoy an evening of poetry and spoken word from new and established poets/writers for this VFD UKBP Special.

Up to 15 poets will each have 5 minutes to share their poems.

There are 3 five minute slots available for singers, rappers, comedians, dancers, musicians, burlesque, magicians, drag queens and drag kings.

Please contact us in advance if you would like to be added to the line up and you will be sent a confirmation message or take a chance and sign up on the night.
