Spoken Word London is an open-mic poetry and performance night for anyone to come and join in, whether to speak or listen. Everyone who wants to speak gets five minutes, but no one gets more than five minutes. Speak in whichever format you want, sharing your own or others' work.
Doors open 7.30pm, sign up for a slot 7.30-8pm, readings begin at 8pm.
There are twenty 5 minute slots available on the door (5 slots for each of our four rounds), on a first come first serve basis. Anyone else who arrives before 8pm can have their name put on the reserve list. One or two names will be called at random from this list at the end of each round…
Free entry, but please buy a drink (or more) at the bar.
