Poetry +, April 24th

Here at Poetry+, we’re interested in pushing the boundaries of Spoken Word Poetry by having spoken word artists collaborate with other art forms as much as possible. Do you like performing to music? Maybe you like to use props? What about having other artists (musicians, dancers, artists etc) perform alongside you? At Poetry+, ANYTHING GOES! There will be up to 8 Open Mic slots per week. To sign up for a slot, just post in the group with what you plan on bringing to the table. Slots will be given on a first-come first-served basis. Slots may be limited to 6 if most acts will require set-up time. Headlined by Rebecca Tantony, support artist Sam Grudgings

ENTRY FEE: £4 on the door for Bath Spa or University of Bath Students £6 on the door for non-students
