Celebrate this year by coming to the National Poetry Day Parole Parlate Special. At 7:30pm, upstairs in Little Venice, St. Nicholas street, Worcester. There will be an outstanding line up to mark the occation including the return of Apples and Snakes' Raymond Antrobus (If you haven't already seen him perform you are seriously missing out), and to add to the excitement the evening will be guest compared by our own Theo Theobald, Worcestershire's First ever Poet Laureate!
