Bridge Inn

It's become a Festival favourite, the Poetry Slam, where poets from around the country compete in front of a lively audience.

The Poetry Slam at the Bridge Inn opens this year's Audlem Music & Arts Festival on Thursday 25th May at 7.00pm. The pub is likely to be packed so get yourself there early for a fun-packed evening.

There follows five days of music, art and poetry at venues throughout the village with over eighty live music acts covering pretty well every genre.

Thursday evening also has the Audlem bell ringers attempting a quarter peal from 7.00pm. This will entail at leat 1,250 changes of the six bells in St James' tower and will last about 45 minutes.

There's music too on the Thursday with Sam Lyon at the Lord Combermere (from 8.00p); Dave Nettleton at the Shroppie Fly from 9.00pm and Midswegan (featuring the ever-popular Fluff) from 9.30pm at the Lord C.
