Josian's Bower

Private Events in Josian's Bower

Josian's Bower at the Richmond Inn, Portswood, Southampton (UK) hosts occasional poetry events. These are not widely advertised, being open mainly to members of The Equi-Phallic Alliance & Poetry Field Club and to members of the rather secretive Southampton Poetry Group. If you would like to attend one of these readings you have to find some way of getting me to tell you about them.

An example Josian's Bower event

The launch of Josian in Ermonie was held at Josian's Bower at the Richmond Inn on Sunday 14th June 2009 at about 8.00pm. A non-standard poetry audience heard Andrew Jordan read the complete text of Josian in Ermonie. The reading was accompanied by Cath Watkins on violin and Nic Bradford on guitar. They made use of the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance to atmospheric effect. To be blunt it was spooky.

Nic and Cath are responsible for Melting Pot which hosts a multitude of mainly musical acts.
