• Summary
  • Venue


Spoken word is poetry at its most striking, most fun and most colourful. Think less scarves and berets, more noise and belly laughs. Watch the country’s best live poets tell tales.

Featuring Manchester’s Thick Richard, whose cynical, lyrical, jet-black humour has earned him support slots for Kate Tempest and BBC 6 Music, Poetry Slam champ Vanessa Kisuule as heard on the BBC, Radio 1&4 and ‘Don’t Flop’, and Gav Roberts.

At North Point Shopping Centre, the show will also feature Hull poet Dean Wilson and live music.
