A highlight of the Roundhouse calendar for the last 14 years, our Poetry Slam is back and although we were gearing up for our first live event we will now be hosting this one-off special online.

To celebrate the incredible poets who have made it through to the final, the Roundhouse Poetry Slam will see some of the freshest emerging talent from around the UK compete for the coveted Slam Champion title streamed live from our iconic main space under new safety regulations. Plus, alongside the judges, audiences will also be able to cast their votes live on the night to crown their very own audience winner.

This year’s judging panel consists of spoken word heavyweights, including writer and poet Anthony Anaxagorou, cultural producer and writer Tobi Kyeremateng and poet, editor and essayist Will Harris.

We would love for you to join us in what is set to be a brilliant Roundhouse Poetry Slam Final!

You can access the live stream for free as we want everyone to celebrate the work of these talented young people. However, we are asking, those that can, to make a donation. Please give what you can so we can continue our work with young people from poets, to film makers to creative entrepreneurs. We need your help now, more than ever.
