We're bringing a brand new night of poetry, comedy & spoken-word to Brixham. Featuring local spoken-word artists Robert Garnham and Chris White, plus an open mic.


Grab a drink, hunker down and enjoy an evening of eclectic work, from the silly to the sublime, all in the cosy setting of The Bottle Shop.

The open mic is open to all poets, storytellers, comedians, songwriters or anyone who makes words with their mouth.
