Poetry & Music Night 2018!

Poetry & Music Night a3.2.jpg

Dear NUTSies,

It’s that time of the year again… Time for students and faculty members of the English department to join forces in the most creative event of the year: the Poetry & Music Night!

If you are a gifted poet or have a musical talent you just need to share with the world (from playing the triangle to setting a beat on the cajon), sign up by sending an e-mail to! Keep in mind that we work on a First Come, First Serve system, as our schedule only allows for a programme that’s 2 to 2.5 hours in length. Make sure to include your name(s), the kind of act you’ll do, and the act’s length (approx. 5 minutes) in your e-mail.

If you’re not a musical genius or gifted poet yourself, you can always be an enthusiastic audience member. Come show off this talent and enjoy an evening of quality entertainment for free! Entry is completely free of charge for both members and non-members. Full = full!

Doors open at 19.30 and show starts at 20.00, please be on time!

Hope to see you all there!
