Party in Newcastle in November

If you are in Newcastle Upon Tyne on 14th November I’m performing for Apples and Snakes and regular Radikal Words, Tyneside Cinema Cafe Bar, 9pm – end of year Slam party.

Slam Poetry is back for our last show of the year and the Xmas party slam – and this time its Love vs Lust. It’s Christmas party time again, and we’re celebrating a year of brilliant acts with a night of incredible performance poetry (as well as hats and crackers of course!). Thanks to the support of Apples and Snakes we are thrilled to add to the line up of the Slam a guest appearance of the fabulous CATH DRAKE.

Poetry Slams are a high-energy, fast and furious competition between performance poets. Each slammer will have three minutes to wow the audience with their words and performance and then the judges vote, scoring on content and style. Over the night we whittle down the poets until only one is left standing. It’s poetry, but not as you know it. To enter or to find out more email Jeff Price at
