Pop Up Poetry returns to Central Library


The Knives, Forks and Spoons (KFS) Press are due to bring back their unique blend of internationally renowned poets to Central Library with their Pop Up Poetry show, as part of the new Cultural Hubs – Arts in Libraries programme.

KFS Press has developed the biggest avant garde poetry list in the UK since its launch in 2010, and is a forum for an extraordinary range of risk-taking artistic experiments.

Expect experimental, modernist, postmodernist, late-modernist, and minimalist poetry of the highest calibre.

Visit www.knivesforksandspoonspress.co.uk for the full programme of artists.

The event on 12 March and 14 May at 1pm is suitable for adults, teens and families. Entry is free, just drop-in. As well as professional performers, there is an opportunity for local amateurs to perform at the events. Please email theknivesforksandspoonspress@hotmail.com for information.

Cultural Hubs is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and allows St Helens Council to enliven the borough’s network of 13 libraries with performances, plays, gigs, workshops, courses, events and exhibitions.

This fifth programme sees the team again working with local people to choose what they want to see in the borough’s libraries as well as a focus on working with local artists to exhibit their work.

If you haven’t already, sign up to the monthly Cultural Hubs e-zine via www.sthelens.gov.uk/arts or follow the team on Twitter @sthelensarts to see all the latest news and events.
