Vogonesque II - 42 Open Mic Night Special

30th May 2012

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy observes that Sequels are events which follow on from the terribly popular success of a first event. It’s vitally important not to hold a sequel before the first event as everyone will get terribly confused, and it simply isn’t done. Vogonesque II follows this tradition, but there the resemblance to anything sane and run-of the mill ends sharply!

‘Vogonesque II’ follows on from the terribly popular Douglas Adams’ themed ‘Vogonesque’ Open Mic night, celebrating ‘Towel Day’ last May, for everyone who loves ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’.  A night of poetry, comedy, mischievous guide entries & music celebrating Towel Day (an international celebration of the life & work of Douglas Adams, author of ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’).

‘Vogonesque’ is inspired by the appalling poetry of Adams’ bureaucratic villains, the Vogons, whose poetry is notorious as the 3rd worst in creation.  Join us for a night of hilarious poetry, wildly inaccurate & mischievous guide entries, brilliant music, & extremely silly observations on the cosmos at large & life in particular. 

The fame of this event held in Worcester has spread as far as the Crab Nebula, where tickets are sold in advance in order to secure geostationary orbit parking places.  Residents of the planet Earth need not worry about this, as they have an unfair advantage, and simply need to climb the stairs to The Lunar Bar above The Swan With Two Nicks public house where the event will be held.

(Vogonesque has become the yearly tribute to Douglas Adams by everyone at the 42 Genre Specific Open-Mic Event, and is their contribution to the international Towel Day Celebrations.)
