Join us for WORD! Slam – this year bought to you by WORD! in collaboration with Some Antics.

With great poems and big prizes, the event will be hosted by Some Antics’ host, Sammy Nour (“A powerhouse on the scene, within seconds he has the crowd hooked.” – Mark Grist) and WORD! Host, Lydia Towsey (“funny, irreverent and rude, thanks to her mum, God bless them both” – Mark Gwynne Jones).

Featuring slammers from Leicester and beyond and a special headline performance. To sign up to slam, email hello@wordpoetry.co.uk
