Poetry is still an ugly word for most, and the combination of Poetry & A Pint isn't a particularly widespread notion. But since the opening event at the Lux in September 2014, A Firm Of Poets have been taking poetry cynics, critics and lovers of the world of word by storm.

The first six months of 'Poetry & A Pint' has seen high quality poets such as Helen Mort, John Hegley, Becky Cherriman, Seymour Frampton and Victoria Garbutt entertain wildly enthusiastic audiences. This is set to continue with poets such as Kirsty Taylor, John Hepworth, Greg White Gav Roberts, Tony Walsh and Rosie Garland slated to appear in the upcoming months.

The open mic has quickly become recognised as the best in Leeds and has showcased some of the regions most exciting talent. The atmosphere at the Lux is welcoming, vibrant and non elitist. Everyone is invited to join in and become part of the Firm.

A Poem and a Pint... It's just what the doctor ordered!'
