Live Poetry Nights in Liverpool, 1967–2001
Open-floor nights are those sessions, usually in the back rooms or basement bars of pubs, at which anyone can get up and have their five minutes performing their poetry, music, comedy or whatever it is they think they can do. This chapter is a somewhat personal attempt to track the continuity of regular poetry sessions in Liverpool, beginning where most examinations of Liverpool poetry end: the disappearance (whether permanent or simply on tour) of Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Patten.
