A POETRY and music club in Portsmouth has unveiled the rest of its plans for the year.

Tongues and Grooves, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, hopes to get £2,000 in funding and get extra cash from corporate sponsorship.

There are also plans to appoint a management committee at an open meeting at a later date.

And it’s hopes connections will be improved with people in education, art and business circles. As previously reported in The News, the group will hold a poetry and music festival to mark its anniversary.

The winners of a writing competition it is currently holding will read at the event at The Square Tower, in Old Portsmouth, in November.

The top prize is £250, second place gets £125 and third place gets £75.
