Poets can show off their talents at an open-mic night in Weston-super-Mare in December.

Mental health group Warriors Of Wellbeing is holding the charity evening at Loves Café in West Street.

It is open to anyone who would like to create and perform a piece of their work on the theme of health and wellbeing.

Each poem should be limited to three minutes, and the audience will vote for their favourites.

Joe, director of Weston Samaritans, said: “This will be a fun, creative and entertaining event, which will hopefully inspire local poets.”

Poet and comic Scott Tyrell, who won the BBC Fringe poetry slam in Edinburgh two years ago, will also perform.

Anyone who wants to take part should turn up and speak to the compere on the night.

It will start at 7pm on December 14, and a supper, priced £6, can be booked in advance.
