Poets and comedians will soon be able to show off their creative talents and jokes at an open mic night to be launched at a coastal pub.
Emma Brookes, known as The Norfolk Dumpling, kicks off an open mic event at Caister’s Centurion pub on Thursday March 31 from 7pm.
The Pay What You Can event will see Miss Brookes take the stage to read some of her poems based on Norfolk legends and myths but with a modern twist.
An example of his work uses the myth of the flying steeple of St Nicholas’s Church in Dereham. However, his poem focuses on the builder and his desperation at getting bad reviews.
Audience members will also have the chance to participate in spoken word, poetic performances and stand-up comedy.
Miss Brookes, 39, said: “This event is for people who want to try something new and it’s an opportunity to support local talent and your local pub.”
There is no obligation for spectators to participate, but those who want to go on stage can do so in the evening.
