Event description

Description

Over the summer, Verbalise brought together group of amazing young spoken word artists who worked with some of biggest names in the industry (Zena Edwards, John Berkavitch, Rachel Long and Cecillia Knapp) to hone their skills as poets.

Beatfreeks and YAY16 are hugely proud to present this showcase of their work.

Please join us for drinks and to see our young stars perform a peice they produced in response to their work at Verbalise.

To mark the occasion we have curated a special set of guest performances for the evening, for free!!:

A leading figure in the scene, Polarbear is a Brummie native and will be joining us to share his unique brand of hip-hop informed storytelling. His tales of a man trying to work things out are not to be missed!
