Poetry Circle is a national platform for writing performers and performing writers. Leeuwarden has had its own Circle since 2016, with pop podium Neushoorn as its base. This is also the place where the annual national Poetry Circle Manifestation will be taking place on Saturday 7 July. Visitors can enjoy performances and shows by no less than fifty writers and performers from all over the country, both young and experienced. The programme is as broad as language itself.
Come in the early evening and listen to the youngest generation of poets who will be giving performances in the building’s most unlikely places. End the evening with a visit to Babs’ Word Salon, a musical spoken word show where musicians, writers, singer-songwriters and other language artists will celebrate written, spoken and sung word art together. Guests at the Word Salon include SMIB, Josephine Zwaan, Tsead Bruinja and Dorothy Blokland.
Saturday 7 July from 19:30 (doors open: 19:00)
Location: Neushoorn, Leeuwarden
