Tell us about the activity you’re bringing to Rewire

Our diverse group of talented Poet Chefs provide high quality personalised poetry for guests and visitors, written performed and delivered free, all from our mobile Poetry Emporium, The Poetry Takeaway.

We aim to make Poetry accessible, with our front of house quickly breaking down barriers before a discussion takes place with one of our Poets.

The process starts with an initial discussion, taking the order, gathering ingredients, we aim to complete the poem quickly, it is carefully crafted, written and performed, wrapped up and sent on it’s journey.

We guarantee everything from tears, laughter and everything in between.
