Slam! Young People Set the Mic Alight!
4pm – 5pm/ Free
Library Theatre, Chamberlain Square, Birmingham, B3 3HQ
Young poets who are involved with RoguePlay’s regular Rhymes night mentor young writers from the West Midlands to battle it out in a poetry slam.
With Becki Head, Kesha Campbell and Jordan Westcarr. The afternoon will be compared by former Birmingham Young Poet Laureate Matt Windle.
Rhymes is a regular performance poetry/spoken word event that hosts established and upcoming local talent. We’ve teamed up with them to link up some of their best young poets with regional young writers who are keen to hone their slamming skills. Throughout the afternoon our poets will mentor the budding slammers as well as performing their own sets, culminating in a performance and slam where the public can vote for their favourite team.
