The Great Northern Slam is back for one last very special evening. We want to go out on a high so we have brought back all our past winners to decide who is the Champion of Champions. All our slammers are veterans of the Slam Poetry scene with more trophies between them than City and United put together. Hosted by Jeff Price and the winner voted on by our audience it will be an epic night.

Slam Poetry is spoken word for the 21st Century. Sixteen of the best slam poets in the North have three minutes each to wow the audience with words and delivery. In each round the audience votes to eliminate poets until only two are left to battle it out for the prize, pride and the glory of becoming Great Northern Slam Champion.

It’s poetry but not as we know it.

When you’re ready to return to us, we’re committed to keeping you safe. Click here to find out about what we’re doing to welcome everyone back safely.
