Arnolfini - est 1961

After an epic Bristol Poetry Festival special last month, Raise the Bar are back to celebrate the incredible poets of Bristol. “Out-loud reactions are encouraged…shaking off traditional theatre etiquette” (Bristol 24/7)

Raise the Bar believes that Bristol is one of the best cities for poetry in the UK – even in the world. With so many wonderful active poets being residents here, we are going to celebrate this with quick-fire sets from a handful of fantastic writers and performers, all bringing something unique to the stage.


Deanna Rodger, Pete the Temp, Stefan Mohamed, Muneera Pilgrim, Tom Denbigh, Claire Guest and Beth Calverley. 

Including a music set from the awesomely witty and feel good acoustic singer-songwriter Gecko!

Hosted by Craft-D and Kat Lyons- Spoken Word & Storytelling, with DJ Ngaio on the decks. 


Doors open 7pm, performance begins at 7:30pm.
