Event: Performance poetry night

If comedy was once the new rock ‘n’ roll, then spoken word must at least be the new nu folk. If you’ve ever been to a poetry reading where the poet stood rock still behind a mic and you couldn’t understand a word – well, it’s not like that any more. Poetry is cool. Nights like Bang Said the Gun, Jawdance from Apples and Snakes and Homework have put the fun back into spoken word and we have no problem riding on their coat tails.

We’re curating a night of performance poetry, and maybe one or two short stories, on Thursday 15th September. We know who’s coming; we’ll tell you later. Or you could just look at the events page.
