Entry to The Forge is down a short driveway between Gwynneville Bakery and The Asian Takeaway on Gipps Road. It's a two-minute walk from the nearest free bus stop, a less than fifteen minutes walk from North Wollongong train station, and there's plenty of free parking on the surrounding streets.

There is unfortunately no disabled access toilet available at the venue (there is a portaloo), however the venue is wheelchair accessible.

Drinks are for sale from Barley Grass Bar on the night.



Sign up at the door when you arrive if you'd like to perform. Everyone is welcome, from bedroom poets to experienced performers. 

3 min time limit, no props or costumes, jump up on stage with a mic and share your original poems, stories, raps, rants and monologues with a live and engaged audience.

Random people from the audience become the judges, and the highest-scoring poet wins! 1st, 2nd & 3rd place PRIZES to be awarded!

But remember: The points are not the point, the point is poetry!
