Damson Poets is a monthly poetry night that takes place in Preston from 7.30-9.30pm every last Wednesday of the month. Our current venue is the New Continental. We host a variety of events ranging from headline acts and themed evenings to the occasional book launch. Most of the evening is open-mic (12 x 5 minute slots) and everybody is welcome, regardless of experience and background.

 

The address is the New Continental, South Meadow Lane, Preston, PR1 8JP. It has wheelchair access.
