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 their words and delivery. Each round eliminates contestants until only two poets are left to battle it out for the prize, pride and the glory of becoming Great Northern Slam Champion.

Hosted by Jeff Price, this is a night of high octane, adrenaline-fueled entertainment.

Special guest poet Rowan McCabe is the world’s first door-to-door poet. He has performed at Glastonbury, on BBC’s The Verb and on Steve Wright in The Afternoon on Radio 2.
