Event description

Description

the WORD theatre brings the BIGGEST, most exciting, and relevant Spoken Word artists in the UK to the stunning theatre stage of the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln every month. Featuring award winning performers from around the country, an open mic, and live music.

Headliners
HARRY & CHRIS in 'The Harry & Chris Show 2'.

Having played together in various forms for over 10 years, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker teams up with BFF/Jazz Musician Chris Read as the imaginatively titled ‘Harry and Chris’. After a debut sell-out run of ‘The Harry and Chris Show’ at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, they are bringing their brand of poetry, music, love and laughter all around the country.

“A combination of catchy hooks and breath-taking verbal ingenuity makes this a winning hour… The quality and quantity of laughs on offer is generous and yet the show is cynicism-free, the tone unapologetically feel-good.” - **** BroadwayBaby

Support from
CONNOR MACLEOD

A 2017 Roundhouse Poetry Slam Semi-finalist, and 2016 Poetry Rivals (highly commended) Finalist, Connor Macleod is a self-proclaimed Stand-Up Poem. He began performing poetry for the first time during fresher’s week at Bath Spa University as a protest against rowdy, Great British Bakeoff ruining, neighbours. Since then, he has gone on to perform all over the country, supporting world class artists such as Buddy Wakefield, Jordan Stephens (Rizzle Kicks) and Miko Berry.

"F*cking fire." - Jordan Stephens
