Poetry Extravaganza! ChCh Town edition

Phew!  Road Show went off with a roar (or should we say 'HOWL') last night.  Thanks to all who came, got their free chapbook and loved the rockin' poetry.  Stay tuned for future Road Shows as Catalyst's extended ad hoc tour rolls into a town/pub near you...

Next up though is the Poetry Extravaganza, this time in Christchurch City at Dux Live - here's the Facebook event:

The first Extravaganza was held at the Wunderbar, Lyttelton and featured 'quick fire' rounds from ChCh Poetry Slam champs interspersed with open mic sections and featured guest poets.  Truly an extravaganza of spoken word.  The quick fire rounds saw the poets set about trying to outdo each other but without the judging element of scorecards etc. - just good old-fashioned oneupmanship.

The night also features a 'drinks with the poets' time pre-show as the late afternoon sun dips down over Hagley Park, be there from 5pm to join the hang out.

ChCh Town Poetry Extravaganza
Sunday 27th January, Dux Live (363 Lincoln Rd)
Drinks from 5pm, show starts 6pm sharp.
