Penzance Poetry Parlour works like this. Doors open at 7 pm, readings start at 7.30. Donations on the door, minimum of £6 please – if you can afford more then Katrina can pay the poets more.

As well as a reading by both poets, there’s a Q&A, plus cava and popcorn.

There’s no pre-booking, it’s always busy, so first come, first served. And if you can’t get there til 7.30, bring a cushion to sit on, in case there’s no chairs left.

Address: 40 St James Street, Penzance, Cornwall/Kernow TR18 2BU. An easy 8 minutes walk from Penzance rail/bus station.
