Poetry By Heart

Poetry by Heart happened on the last Wednesday of each month between November 2011 and August 2015 at the HEART Centre Cafe, Bennett Road, Headingley, Leeds LS6 3HN.

It was discontinued after a customer of the cafe complained that it was not the ‘family friendly atmosphere’ advertised on the Heart Centre’s website.  Understandably, the man’s 2-year old child was restless at 8:00 pm and did not enjoy the poetry that the other 30-odd customers were listening to.

Each month up to six poets had a 15 minute slot to perform their work.  They receive no fee or expenses, and admission was free.

The readers may offer books for sale.

The cafe still sells good food (especially the cakes), tea, coffee, wine and a good selection of bottled beers and cider.
