AT The Edge, Cavan is back in the Flesh
Tuesday 20 October, 6.30pm to 8pm in The Old Townhall, Cavan
AT The Edge, Cavan is back in town on Tuesday 20 October, 6.30pm to 8pm in The Old Townhall, Cavan with three well established poets reading their work in the flesh. As usual, it will be followed by the AT The Edge Open Mic.
The reading will be limited to the first twenty people to register with At The Edge, Cavan curator, Kate Ennals (email@example.com) in order to allow for social distancing.
“I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing the three poets read their work,” said Kate Ennals, “Zoom, although great, is not the same. Also, the Open Mic will be a great opportunity to hear what poems Cavan people have been writing during the lockdown, though there is no theme for the open mic as such.”
