• The Society Club 12 Ingestre Pl London, W1F 0JF United Kingdom

You have written a lyric you want to try out. You need to send a verbal message to a friend. You want to excoriate someone who has traduced you. You long to share the beauty of a language few have heard. Maybe you just want to celebrate a favourite, or read from a first edition found on a shelf. All these are possible on Friday evenings at the Society Club. You can sing a capella. You can recite a soliloquy, or share a poetic passage in prose. Only one rule: don’t go on for more than five minutes. Others are waiting and soon another will get up and do his/her thing. Then it is back to delicious cocktails and exuberant chat.

Open to members. Non-members, £5 entry.
