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.
