This is an event not to be missed! A rare combination of three unique voices. Our work will take you from Tanzania to Bangladesh, to Egypt and Beirut, Palestine, New York, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Germany...
You are the only passport you will need, though we do ask for £2 to cover costs. Albion Beatnik is a rather special bookshop, we think. Bookshops as well as poets need your support.
Here's a bit more about us:
