And we’re back! May’s event features a duo of Greens, with performance poet and playwright Jess Green and local performance poet Duncan Green. Come along for your chance to compete in the Hammer and Tongue slam, where one lucky winner will be going home with a ticket to the regional final in December and a chance to appear in the national finals in 2018.

The rules for the slam are simple. There are 8 places for eight poets to take part. Each poet has 3 minutes to impress a panel of 5 judges, selected at random from the evening’s audience. Judges score each performance out of 10. Highest score is deducted, lowest score is deducted, and the total of the three remaining scores is the score the poet gets. No props allowed. Time penalty if you go over time.

And finally, your hosts for the evening will be Matt West and Hollie Ward. Admission £7.50
