Poetry @ The Petersham bowls has been going monthly since January 2016.
We asked Mark to tell us a little bit about P@TPB and heres what he had to say:
Well in the first two years it was Co hosted by Barry Sargent and myself. Barry hasn't been able to make it to the club for awhile , so usually i have been hosting it solo. On several occasions it's been guest hosted by Bee Perusco and Lynn Fairy.
Our format is entirely open mic, rather than having a feature poet, though on occasions we have had a feature poet.
Our events usually include some music as well, and on occasions, short stories and comedy.
As well as our monthly event at the Bowlo ( on the 3rd Thursday), we also hold it on the 4th Thursday each month - as we've expanded our reach into England, so our friends over there can continue to take part.
