Damson Poets is a monthly poetry night that takes place in the Ham & Jam Coffee Shop in Preston from 7.30-9.30pm every last Wednesday of the month. 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, to come along and perform in a safe and encouraging environment.
The address is Ham & Jam Coffee Shop, 50 Lancaster Rd, Preston PR1 1DD and it has disabled access. There is an excellent selection of teas, coffees, sandwiches, cakes and biscuits.
