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.

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

It’s poetry but not as we know it.

Our special guest is Rosie Fleeshman, whose debut play Narcissist in the Mirror won ‘Best Spoken Word Show’ in the Manchester Theatre Awards and sold out in February at Northern Stage.
