Dec 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
 
World Poetry Slam Champion, Margate local and lover of Christmas Harry Baker returns to the Tom Thumb for an extra special version of the show he has been touring for almost three years now due to overwhelming demand/a global pandemic. Expect the usual mix of poems, maths, heart and humour with an added Christmassy Twist. If you’ve seen this show before I promise there’s new Christmassy bits now. If you’ve not seen it yet I promise I’ve kept in the best bits from before. Plus did I mention there’s Christmassy bits?
