This week’s puzzled poet is a true gentleman, and we know this because we met whilst navigating the outer rim of galaxy 2471a. There in the depths of space, rapidly leaking oxygen due to an impromptu game of knifey-handy, Matt ‘the terror of Tenturion 7’ Nicholson fashioned a repair kit using only moisture from his suit and space dust.

Sticking with our opening salvo of Puzzle Hall Poet royalty, we have Bob Horne. Alongside John Foggin, Bob was at the helm of the Puzzle Hall Poets for six (yes count them six) years, before handing over the reigns to Laura, Charlotte and Steve.

Obviously we are missing all of your lovely faces terribly and as a small offering to help stave off the urge to scale the walls, we’ve started a new interview series – The Poet Puzzlers (blame Steve for the cheesy name). First up is our very own Laura Potts. Continue reading
Puzzle Poets at the Navigation is proud to present our Monday March 2nd event. Special guest Oz Hardwick and open mic (of course).
Oz Hardwick was due to be our guest last November when his gig was cancelled at the 11th hour by the unexpected closure of the pub. We’re delighted that it’s re-opened, and finally we’ll get to hear him perform. Continue reading
