The Roundhouse Poetry Slam Final returns to our epic Main Space stage after a complete sell-out last year.

Don’t miss the next generation of spoken word artists and poets aged 16-25 competing for this much-coveted Slam title.

Hosting the evening will be Polish poetry slam winner and poetry activist Bohdan Piasecki, while our line-up of judges include Hollie McNish, Sabrina Mahfouz and Yomi Sode.

The Poetry Slam Heats will take place on Thursday 19 May and Friday 20 May 2016.
