Garden Lounge's flagship live poetry & music event is back! Every Thursday from 6pm - 8pm+, alternating short sets of reading & singing.

Join us for an evening of live poetry and music. Special guest performers are typically announced two weeks before the event. Open mic performers are welcome and encouraged to arrive early for sign up.
As always this event is free and open to all people of all ages.
Donations on entry are encouraged, and all donations of $7 or more receive a free coffee.
Please note we are currently limited to 10 individual audience members in the building at any time. There is room on the footpath for additional audience members and our rear courtyard accommodates up to 6 more.

November 4th our musical performance is by Little Napier (solo mode)

Our writer tonight is Garden Lounge founder Michael Aiken, reading work by various writers he admires.

We host a range of local and touring writers, most often poets, at various stages of their career including internationally recognised artists with established careers, first -time performers, and everyone in between.
If you are interested in performing at Garden Lounge, please come and sign up for the open mic or email bWljaGFlbCB8IGdhcmRlbmxvdW5nZSAhIGNvbSAhIGF1
