What’s on at The Poets

Here at the Poets, we host a wide range of events throughout the year. As a community focused pub we wish to provide a welcoming and friendly atmosphere to all our customers. Whilst we’re best known for our fantastic coverage of live sports, it’s best to think of us more as a modern British pub with great food & drink and regular entertainment, that just so happens to love live sport and show a lot of it. We’re much more than your average local and have lots on for everyone to enjoy.

Monthly events

Whilst we’re a family friendly pub, there is plenty for adults to enjoy here at the Poets. From live comedy from some of the south coast’s best professional comedians and upcoming talent every third Friday of the month, to our brand new addition of ‘MC Cashback’s Big Bloody Quiz!’ taking the conventional general knowledge pub quiz and duct-taping a bottle of brandy into each of it’s hands, we’ve got plenty of post-watershed fun to enjoy. We also host Night Howl choir group every Wednesday during term time for those of you that love a good sing-along. There’s also Relationship Goals 2.0 which is a wonderful way for new parents to enjoy the pub whilst learning about themselves and each other.

Thinking of putting on your own event?

It’s entirely possible you’ve been in to see us for a pint without even knowing that we have a dedicated function room upstairs. Best suited for small to medium sized gatherings, it’s available for private hire so get in touch with us for more information.
