Chill Pill @ The Albany
Thursday, September 27, 2012
Deptford, London, UK SE8 4AG
We asked what you thought. You said you loved the friendly atmosphere, the variety of poets, the open mic, the rappers that we've had down. BUT you were definitely not happy with the quality of jelly beans provided. You demanded better.
We listened. We thought long and hard. We visited countless sweet shops. And have returned with the goods. Chill pill is back for autumn with our two best line ups yet! Get involved!
Curated by Mr Gee (host of Radio 4's Bespoken Word and Rhyme and Reason), Raymond Antrobus, Deanna Rodger, Simon Mole and Kim-Leng Hills, Chill Pill is a laid-back poetry night where up-and-coming poets share the stage with some of the finest spoken word acts in the UK. Plus, we'll be mixing it up with tightly spun tales inspired by today's headlines, the ever-popular Classics Corner and plenty of banter to boot.
Whether you're a spoken word enthusiast, emerging poet or just curious, come with a sense of humour and leave your expectations at the door.
