As part of our extended weekend of National Poetry Day and festival events we are really excited to be reviving the poetry night 'Word Up' for our anniversary year. Birmingham Poetry Festival has a lot to thank Word Up, one of Birmingham's most popular past poetry events for. Not only was it one of the key inspirations for the festival and an event that helped create a surge in interest for poetry events and poetry in the city but it also added some great poets to the festival line-ups.
As well as a few opn mics available on the night time permitting we'll be bringing you:
Headliner and former Birmingham Poet Laureate Dreadlockalien — another of this year's highlights
Word Up Host and special guest performer Ddotti Bluebell
Live music from Ashley Webber
and the very talented singer-songwriter Katie Jay
'Poetreality's pentapoetryperformance: Five Themes':
A Festival and National Poetry Day Themes set
from festival founder poetreality
One open mic-er (t.b.c.) Kaveeta Mattu, possibly more slots on the night
This event is free and there's no need to book!
