Miggy Angel presents The Do Or Die Poets – Part of the Nottingham Poetry Festival

FRIDAY 27th November 6-9pm at Sobar, 22 Friar Lane, Nottingham

Join us as we welcome the Nottingham Poetry Festival to the Sobar for a fantastic, inspiring night of Do Or Die poetry. The Do Or Die Poets are the attendees of my weekly creative writing workshop, where I am fortunate to witness the courage and talent of these brilliant writers-in-recovery, and I am very proud to be hosting an event intended to showcase and celebrate their amazing writing. It’s wonderful that the guys are also part of the inaugural Nottingham Poetry Festival!

On the evening we’ll have poetry from the Do Or Die Poets themselves, plus an open mic session (open mic slots are limited so arrive early to book as it will be first-come first-served) – as well as featured guests from the local Nottingham spoken word scene, and a set from our headline act, the fantastic East Midlands poet, Toby Campion!

Sobar says – “This will be an early gig, from 6pm – 9 pm, an early start to the weekend, and we hope you can join Sobar after work for a bite to eat – SOBAR is an alcohol free bar so we advise the milkshakes and vintage lemonade!

We will be doing a Happy Hour special between 6pm – 7pm where all our guests will receive 50% off all food on our menu.

The food is awesome too with a variety of treats such as Full english (all day), breakfast muffins & bacon sandwiches. We have panini, burgers, ‘soup of the day’, salads. We highly recommend the Goats Cheese panini!

The money spent at the bar goes towards the bands and to SOBAR which is part of the Double Impact Services charity helping people in recovery.

As with all SOBAR SOCIAL’s this event is FREE!

Sobar Social is a new exciting event held at Sobar on the last Friday of every month. The event is designed for people in recovery and their friends. It is an event where people can come together and enjoy an evening of entertainment and socialize without the booze.

Miggy Angel presents the Do Or Die Poets at Sobar Friday 28th Aug

I am proud to announce that this Friday 28th August from 6pm to 9pm at Sobar Nottingham I will be hosting a night of live poetry from the attendees of my weekly creative writing group – as well as guests – and an open mic – that means you, too!

The Do Or Die Poets have not convened for our own poetry night since the wonderful Atlas Deli events back in the day – and we aim to make the night in the same tradition as those great nights were: poetry from the heart from those who have lived the life and survived to tell the tale. The Do Or Die Poets are writers in recovery, who have found a way to marshal the word to the cause of survival, and their courageous poetry will leave you broken open and etched anew. Like all good and true poetry should.

We will be joined by guests from the local poetry and spoken-word scene, and also have some limited places available for the open-mic. If you would like to perform then please arrive at 6pm to put your name down – first come first served – but obviously we will endeavour to ensure everyone gets a turn if we can.

For those who don’t know, the Sobar is Nottingham’s only alcohol-free venue, and is a wonderful city-centre venue. Hopefully this will be the beginning of more regular events from the Do Or Die Poets – see you there Friday night! It’s gonna be a night not to be missed. And it’s completely free!
