Spoken Word in the Secret Garden

Third Thursday of the month

"I thought that spring must last forevermore; for I was young and loved, and it was May."

- Vera Brittain

Our Spoken Word evenings hosted by Sophie Clarke return this May but this time we are going outdoors into the Secret Garden at the Mansion House.

If you are unfamiliar with the format, Spoken Word events encompass a huge variety of writing and performance styles, from the intimately personal and heart-breaking to the uproariously funny and celebratory. Poetry in all its forms will be the main feature, along with memoirs, stories, monologues and any number of almost-indefinable types of prose!

This is an outdoor event with picnic bench seating so be prepared for unexpected weather and wrap up warm.

We recommend this event for adults 18+. Doors 6pm. The Secret Garden is wheelchair accessible, for access enquiries please contact us at


Calderstones Mansion House, Calderstones Rd, Liverpool L18 3JB, UK
