42 Worcester is the only alternative genre spoken word event in Worcestershire. Founders Glenn and Angela James opened the doors at 42 for the first time in March 2011. Glenn and Angela moved on, John Taylor organised the event for some months, and for six years Andrew Owens and Polly Stretton were the organisers. Andrew’s had to step back, but Polly continues to run the event, considered to be one of the most welcoming event and audiences around.
The focus is on Gothic, Horror, Sci-fi and Fantasy writing though many stories and poems are about the darker side of everyday life.
We meet at Drummonds at The Swan With Two Nicks, New Street, Worcester WR1 2DP on the last Wednesday of each month. Doors open at 19:00 for a prompt 19:30 start—all welcome.
