We're super excited for this months headline poet Chris Oliver! One of the most talented & humble poets in Nottingham who has supported Poetry Scum since the very beginning.

His insights are thought provoking and heart felt, drawing on his personal experiences growing up in Nottingham.

This months headline musician Sue Larue is gonna go down a right treat! A singer of filth & freedom. Sue Larue, musician and song writer who can't take life seriously, or music for that matter.
