This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Over two nights, Scottish cabaret duo Rally & Broad will present their first ever Commonwealth Poetry Slam!
The first night will see some of Scotland's finest performance poets and spoken word artists duke it out through the heats and semi-finals to capture a place in the final the following evening. Four finalists will each present a ten-minute set, before the winner is decided by the audience and a panel of well known judges!
The twelve poets competing for a place in the final are:
Sally Evans, Robin Cairns, Sophia Walker, Sam Small, Leyla O'Reilly, Doug Garry, Agnes Torok, Kevin Gilday, Rachel Amey, Jim Monaghan, Carly Brown and Martin O'Connor.
Poetry! Performance! Spraffing! See you there?
