Last event in 2015.

Following our storming Carcanet New Poetries event and brilliant readings from Tiffany Atkinson and Matt Howard, we're rounding off the year with a special event in partnership with Pivotal, The Cambridge Festival of Change. This time the event is at the Espresso Library, East Road, on Sunday 6th December. It features the unmistakable and unmissable Mario Petrucci, and includes a screening of his short film Amazonia.

Meanwhile our programme for winter and spring 2016 is shaping up nicely, we're intending that all events be on the fourth Tuesday of each month, and held upstairs at CB2 in the peaceful environs of the rearmost room ('The Library').

New Season Venue

We have a new home for the Autumn 2015-Spring 2016 season. Events will be upstairs at the lovely CB2 Bistro Café on Norfolk Street, where there is plenty of room for us to swing a poet or two, and a great bar/café downstairs where you can get all manner of drinks, cakes and savoury delights. Here is our venue information page. Now, we realise there is a slight possibility of confusion, so to be clear... we are still called CB1 Poetry, but we are at CB2 Café, not at our origin/namesake of CB1 Café on Mill Road. Good to get that off our chest...
