About Coffee-House Poetry:

Coffee-House Poetry was created in 1997 by Anne-Marie Fyfe to build on the long-standing tradition of Troubadour poetry readings and remains unique in London, not just for its long-standing popularity, but for the unique “cellar-club” ambiance:- cabaret stage (with sound & lights), seating arranged around cafe tables, interval ambiance provided by a musician (& broadcaster & poet & critic) C.L. Dallat on accordion, mandolin, bandoneon, jazz-piano, sax, latest news & views on poetry happenings, information on courses, magazines & competitions, debates, party events, launches, poetry books & magazines on sale and a general sense of being at the hub of the capital’s literary life.
