Recite a favourite tale or perform your own material at an open mic night.

Poetry fans can take to the stage alongside established poets John Akinde and Dauda Ladejobi at Studio 3 Arts monthly Spoken to Stirred event on Thursday.

If you prefer just come along and soak up the words of others, while enjoying a few drinks at the Galleon Community Centre, in Boundary Road, Barking.

Steven Smith, learning and participation producer, said: “In January, it went really well. It was a good turn out and a good mix of ages for those who came along.

“People came from Barking and Dagenham and even outside of the area,”

“A lot of people felt really welcomed, as everyone was chatting to everyone, as well as reading poetry.”

The night will be only the second one of the year and the arts organisation hopes “it will continue to grow” in the future.

Spoken not Stirred will kick start at 7pm on Thursday, February 9. £5 suggested entry donation. Call 020 8594 7136 for more information.
