BRADFORD poet Sharena Lee Satti is bringing another open mic night to the city to create, what she describes as, "our own poetry culture".

The poet believes the district is getting a reputation for the arts with wordsmiths travelling from Leeds and Wakefield to share their own poetry.

Poets - young and old- will come in from the cold at Bread & Roses this Friday around 7pm.

The free event - named Dark Days, Bright Nights - will bring people from all walks of life together to share their poetic words and stories.

Sharena said: "I was asked to do an open mic there. It's for people to come and share their words. It's a really nice way for people to get together. We build a community and with poetry it's like a family connection that we build.

"It's a culture of being together."
