Hate Christmas? Don’t believe in Santa Claus? Far from home this holiday season? Come drown your winter blues in whisky and poetry with the rest of us ex-pats! PLU Open Mic Christmas with our special guest Rufo Quintavalle, who will be launching his new chapbook from corrupt press.

If you would like to read, dance, sing or otherwise express yourself, sign up is open and free to all starting at 20h-ish. We go until we drop – which means all night long! In any language. Or no language at all. No limits. Extreme poetry. Nudity encouraged.

The real Santa Claus will be hosting.
