    My suggestion would be:

    English Evening
    Tuesday 7th May 2013
    7pm to 10pm
    Including songs, plays, jokes, stories and poems, all performed in English by our groups
    All welcome

    No. Please look at my suggested version again and try to use the same constructions. A "PS" is definitely not appropriate on a poster for an event.
