Aisle16 is Ten!

Aisle16 is 10!

The UK’s top poetry collective turns ten years old this winter, and to celebrate they invite you to The York Tavern in Norwich for poems & pints.

It’s been 10 years since a group of students put on a poetry gig above a communist theme bar on a cobbled Norwich street. In 2000 Aisle16 was made up of three well-meaning performance poetry novices who couldn’t work the PA. In 2010 its members are acknowledged as “highlights of the spoken word scene” by The Sunday Times; they are successful broadcasters, novelists, regular contributors to a range of top journals, and share the stage with the country’s top comedians, musicians and writers at their celebrated literary cabaret Homework. 

It’s been quite a decade, and members of Aisle16 past & present will be meeting up for a special gig back where it all began – the fine city of Norwich. As the York Tavern was Aisle16’s home for three years (2001-2004), it seemed like the obvious place to do it. There will also be readings from poets & writers who have gigged with Aisle16 over the years.
