About Festival Closing Party with Rock the Boat & Arusa Qureshi
Finish the festival in style at our closing party with a special festival edition of Rock the Boat open mic, hosted by vivacious poets Catherine Wilson Garry and Julia Sorensen, followed by drinks, dancing and a DJ set from the inimitable Arusa Qureshi.
Come to read or listen, cut some shapes or chat in the corner. Bring your mates or put yourself out there and meet someone new. Say your final farewells to your new poet pals or finally connect with that poet you heard or the cool person from the workshop you went to.
If you've waited all weekend to share your own work, then here's your chance. Sign up for an open mic slot and try out new work, reintroduce old favourites, or maybe even take to the poetry stage for the first time.
