The Gipsy Hill Tavern
The poetry venue is one minute away from Gipsy Hill Mainline Station.

This site is dedicated to keeping you up to date on the latest and greatest from Beyond Words.

Beyond Words is a monthly poetry event in South London that hosts talent from the world of poetry and spoken word.

As well as booking headline poets for all to enjoy the event hosts a platform for new, amateur and up and coming writers. We love variety too, so if you have a poem, a (very) short story, a 5 minute play or even an excerpt from a novel that you would like to share then come and talk to us and join our warm and welcoming audience for a great night out.

We meet every 1st Tuesday of the month. Doors open at 7.15 for a 7.30 start.

The Gipsy Hill Tavern is just a one minute walk from Gipsy Hill Station (that’s 15 mins from Clapham Junction and just 25 mins from Victoria or London Bridge) and trains back to central London run every 15 mins.
