Description

The first season of new monthly Brum poetry night BOOM is upon us and what a line-up we have for you!

BOOM is a new monthly poetry night for Brum which will take place on the first Wednesday of each and every month. Each night will have a national poetry headliner along with two local or emerging features. There will be a set amount of open mic opportunities - arrive early to sign up. Our regular host is Leon Priestnall (HOWL), our house DJ is DJ Grit'n'grind (formerly Hit The Ode). Can you afford not to be a regular attender at BOOM? Can you REALLY?

The headliner of our November show is the amazing ROSY CARRICK!! Longtime co-host of the poetry stages at Latitude and Glastonbury festivals, Rosy is also co-curator, alongside Luke Wright, of the Port Eliot festival poetry stage. She has a PhD on the poetry of Vladimir Mayakovsky, and has released two books of his work in translation: Volodya (Enitharmon, 2015) and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (Smokestack, 2017). Last year Rosy's critically acclaimed solo performance play Passionate Machine won Best New Play at Brighton Fringe and The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence at Edinburgh Fringe. She has a deep unwavering passion for TV quizzes and bodybuilders of the classic variety, and will be reading from her new collection Chokey.

Supporting her are two fantastic local poets - Tarik Ross-Cameron and Afrah Yafai. Both are well known on the local scene although we feel we never seem to see enough of them. Join us for what will be an incredible night of poetry.

Tickets on the door will be £6, so it's chea per to book online.:) Also online ticket buyers will be entered into a prize draw to receive two free tickets to the Jan 8 BOOM

Don't miss it! :)
