Part of: Chester Literature Festival 2022

What makes a good cocktail? What on earth is a cinquain? And why have we put the two together? If you join us for a night of boisterous beverages and punchy poetry, you might just find out. We will treat you to a high quality mix of a spirited guest poet, a performance mixologist, a mixer act and much more.

Their challenge will be to create a whole new drink inspired by poetry.

Oh yes, and what is cinquain, you ask? It’s just a fancy five-line poem.

Something like this:

Join us
for a fun night
of liquid poetics
that might make you spit
veneers to shout cheers!

14+ for performance only, 18+ for alcohol buyers ​
