A performance that hopes to overturn poetry's "stuffy and boring image" is coming to Sheringham.
Toast is a poetry and spoken word event which combines the energy of a music gig with the impact of a stand-up comedy show.
It is the brainchild of Norwich-based poet, writer and performer Lewis Buxton, 29, who runs monthly sessions in the city and now wants to bring it to the seaside.
He said: "It's Toast on the coast, and aims to break down the bad, slightly stuffy, boring image poetry can have, probably linked to people's school days."
Headlining poet performers are Molly Naylor, and John Osborne, with support from Prerana Kumar.
Toast is on Saturday, May 7 at 7.30pm, with an invitation to “pay what you can afford”.
