Monday February 12 is ‘Love Night’ at the Frome Poetry Cafe - always a delightful event, as Open Mic responses range from tender to jaundiced, from sonnet to limerick, from true romance to off-topic-entirely‚Ķ and to add extra sparkle there will be two terrific guests: a welcome return by Rosie Jackson, always an immensely popular contributor, and a debut spot as guest to Josephine Corcoran, who is also much-published and widely admired. 

So this should be a great night! Please bring your poems and your friends to  The Garden Cafe, Stony Street, 7.30-9.30 (but come a bit earlier to get a drink and a seat because we start promptly)

The Poetry Cafe in Frome Somerset, began during the first Frome Festival in 2001 and became a regular and popular event on the first Monday of alternative months.



Frome is a town of enormous charm, with its steep, winding streets, its wealth of beautiful old buildings and its friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

It has more listed buildings than any other town in Somerset and remains the biggest of the five Mendip towns. Frome is renowned for its thriving Arts community and boasts a high number of resident authors, poets and performance artists.

Older than Bath (13 miles north), its history dates from AD685, when St Adhelm founded a mission on the River Frome. The town has largely escaped extensive redevelopment, and is an ideal touring base for the many attractions of the area
