The Axis Slam 2016 : Hosted by Ciarán Hodgers

October 6, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
Axis Studio
£8 (£5 concessions)

If you know what a slam is, then you know what’s in store. If you don’t, then expect to be
entertained, moved, lifted and transported by competitive poetry, as the slammers bring
you everything in their arsenal to be crowned the Axis Slam Champ 2016.

And the stakes are higher than ever – our competing poets will win cash prizes and guest
slots at some of the best spoken word nights on offer – Evidently Salford, Sonnet Youth
Glasgow, Voicebox Wrexham, and Dublin’s Lingo festival.

Plus there will be debut UK performances from international guest poets including the
Slam Sunday Champion from Dublin and the Sonnet Youth Slam Champion from Glasgow.

Hosted by award-winning spoken word poet Ciarán Hodgers, this is your chance to sit back and enjoy the visceral and the vibrant, and witness the victorious!
Gathering poets from London, Scotland, Manchester, Yorkshire and beyond the Axis Slam will become a focal point for vibrant, lively voices on the 6th October, which just so happens to be National Poetry Day. (We certainly haven’t planned this at all…)

Slammers are:

Hannah Davies
Joy France
Christopher Bowles
Maddie Godfrey
David Jarman
Kieran Hayes
Ella Otomewo
Trevor Meaney
Jo Johnson
Freddie Alexander
Rose Condo
Michelle Fisher
