SpOAKen Word Lewes
On the first Sunday of every month at 7pm, Janine Booth hosts an evening of poetry at the Royal Oak, 3 Station Street, Lewes, East Sussex BN7 2DA.
"The lockdowns of the debut two years of the twenties were bleak, grim and at times downright depressing. You probably won’t welcome being reminded about them, but amongst any cloud there are always silver linings and for the lovely town of Lewes one of those silver linings was the arrival of Janine Booth."
Headliner Luci:d plus a parade of particularly poetic open mic'ers.

I owe my very existence to Russian fucking tanks.
If my dad had not run from them 66 years ago in Hungary, he never would have come here, never would have met my mum.
Even though I never faced them myself the bloody trail of their tracks is imprinted on my life.
"We had a powerful mix of the angry, the poignant, the confessional, and the amazing, as well as the political."
