Getting established after only 2 months...
Once a month (the second Wednesday), Charters hosts "A pint of poetry" - your chance to have a drink with friends whilst being entertained by a variety of poetry and short drama performances.
'A Pint of Poetry' - an open mike night for Poetic and Dramatic readings and performances. Targeting people that would enjoy taking part in performances as well as just coming along to watch, meet like minded people and enjoy a bit of culture.

Mark Grist, an English and Drama teacher based in Peterborough, and a member of a local amateur dramatics group.Summer Moeed studied for the London Academy of Music and Dramatics Arts grades in acting and been involved in community drama.
We're enthusiastic about poetry, drama and are keen to build a community of like minded people in our home town. We have contacts with arts groups in the city whose members attend and support this event.
A Pint of Poetry will be from 8 to 10pm, with performances starting from 8:15. At the beginning of the night we'll set a running order for those who have attended with a reading / performance planned. There will be three 20 minute slots, with 15 minute gaps in between each slot for people to get drinks. Each slot is likely to have 5 to 6 performances:
8:15 - 8:35 – Slot 1
8:50 - 9:10 – Slot 2
9:25 - 9:45 – Slot 3
As the event organisers we intend to share the comparing between us which would be at the start and end of every slot and also to introduce each performance.
All free of charge. Starts 8pm
Performers also needed!
Feel free to bring along your own material or anything you have enjoyed reading, seeing or hearing in the past.
