House of Bricks, a new spoken word gig that started in December last year, following on from the Egg Gallery readings, has attracted an impressive crowd for its January gig last Thursday. Like Egg Gallery, House of Bricks spoken word takes place in an art gallery and has attracted a crowd outside the usual poetry crowd. MC Santo Cazzati says that numbers were around 100 as people packed in despite the bad weather to hear a range of feature poets.

HOB takes place on the last day of each month, regardless of day and is well worth getting along to.
