The Michaelhouse is based around the historic St Michael's Church, which was built in 1328 both as a Parish and a Collegiate church. The building has been restored and stunningly remodelled to provide a unique performance space, art gallery, cafe and meetings venue.

For CB1 Poetry, it offers a beautiful city centre location for our readings, with the capacity and accessibility needed for our major new 2007-2008 programme. The licensed bar will be open for drinks before and after the performances (till 11pm), and during the 15 minute interval.

The Michaelhouse is located on Trinity Street, just before Rose Crescent and Green Street (or for those more at home with bookshops than street names, between the Cambridge University Press Bookshop and Heffers); a map is given below. There is a disabled drop-off point at the venue, and parking is available in the usual city centre locations and also free of charge by The Backs, which is only a short walk away. (These areas are shaded blue on the map).
