‘Scratchers’ are guest feature at Beyond Words

The London-based poetry collective, Poets Scratching Heads, were guest feature at this month’s Beyond Words – South London’s newest spoken word venue, based at The Gipsy Hill Tavern.

Four out of a collective of six ‘Scratchers’ were able to be there on Tuesday night and wow a lively audience with poems about life, love and the universe (and a sheep too!) Claire Booker, Barry Jones, Natasha Morgan and Caroline Vero shared some of  their gems (and new stuff too).  There will be further opportunities to hear them, and fellow ‘Scratchers’ Chris Delaney and Cath Kane, next year.

Beyond Words happens every first Tuesday of the month, and has a generous open mic spot of up to 5 minutes for anyone who wishes to share their poetry, drama, fiction or music.  The Gipsy Hill Tavern is only 1 minute walk from Gipsy Hill train station (served by Victoria and London Bridge trains).

Venue: The Gipsy Hill Tavern, 79 Gipsy Hill Tavern, SE19 1QH. Doors open at 7pm for 7.30pm start. Entry fee £4/£3 (concessions).
