VERSE-makers turfed out of their Huddersfield meeting place will be returning tomorrow.
They will resume monthly readings in the town centre Albert pub where they have gathered since the early 1990s.
The poets are returning after a spell away when the pub shut suddenly for alterations.
And it's a date to which they are eagerly looking forward.
John Duffy, a founder member of the poets, said: "There is nowhere like the Albert."
The group meets there for workshops and readings, gaining widespread acclaim and publishing poetry anthologies.
New writers are being urged to come along to the readings tomorrow at 8pm.
Ed Reiss, who helps to run the group, said: "We are delighted to be back home.
"We looked for other venues and found people who were ready to welcome us, but the atmosphere in the bar and back room of the Albert cannot be reproduced elsewhere."
Customers raised a toast to the Albert's reopening in April. There had been fears it would not reopen after closing suddenly in January.
But drinkers who came back after its reopening were pleasantly surprised to find a sympathetic makeover preserving original Victorian fittings.
Landlord Jim King said: "We look forward to welcoming the poets back and we hope their presence will help feed the Albert's revival.
"We are a traditional ale house, with eight guest beers. That ought to keep the poets happy."
