The HLF Poetry Slam is open to all performance poets, with a top prize of £50.


Loud, funny, hard hitting – bring your poems, raps, comedy and confessions to be performed live and judged by audience members. Or just come along for the entertainment.


Hosted by performance poet, musician, journalist and political activist Attila the Stockbroker, who will also perform some of his work. Attila has performed around 3,400 gigs in 24 countries, released 40 albums, seven books of poetry and an autobiography: Argument’s Yard (2015).


Slam rules: Sign up 6.30pm, original work only (3 mins max). No racist, sexist or homophobic language. Round one: all performers, round two: top three scored by audience members.
