The Stablemates reading series takes place at The Poetry Cafe (22 Betterton St, London, WC2H 9BX) on the fourth Thursday of the month (well, not December, July or August). Each features three poets from one publisher. Doors open at 7pm, readings start promptly at 7.30 and last about an hour. Occasional special editions happen elsewhere!
