Next Hotchpotch meeting: Wed 10 Apr at Blend on Dock Street, 6:00pm for 6:30pm

Good evening,

There’s just a week to go until Gavin and Eilidh host the next Hotchpotch on Wednesday 10 April at Blend on Dock Street. The doors open at 6:00pm, and the readings begin at 6:30pm.

So what can you expect at our event?

This takes an open-mic format where each reader is given seven minutes on a first-come basis to read poems and/or stories. There is no pressure to read; many people come along just to be part of the audience.

We also collect donations on the night, which allow us to hire the venue. General admission is set at £3, or free of charge if you’re unwaged. Take a look at for more information.

Bear in mind that Hotchpotch is not a place to heckle nor interrupt. Anyone being disruptive may be asked to leave.
