Welcome to Brewery Poets
Brewery Poets has a long history with the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. Established
over 30 years ago, many well known Cumbrian and north Lancashire poets have come together to discuss their work.
We meet in the Vats Bar on the second Friday of every month, grab a drink and a chat and head for Art Room 1 for a workshop session. Each poet brings a work-in-progress which is read and discussed.
We have two public readings a year in the Warehouse Cafe at the Brewery, one in May and one in November, when members of Brewery Poets and/or guest poets read their work and promote any books or pamphlets. Usually there’s some live music, too. It’s a great venue, with deep leather sofas to curl into as you sip a glass of wine (or tea or coffee) and listen to some amazingly good poetry.
