Frome Poetry Cafe on Monday December 10th will be our festive finale for 2018, featuring a welcome return visit from Rosie Jackson. Rosie is always an immensely popular guest and she’ll be sharing some recent work, including hopefully her several prize-winning successes this summer: a hat-trick in Wells including the prestigious First, and a second prize in Torbay too.

Suggested theme for the Open Mic readings is ‘Light’, which as always is open to wide creative interpretation!

Session runs 7.30-9.30, Garden Cafe (Stony Street) doors open 7pm, cover charge £2 payable at the counter.

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
