The Last Word 2021

A Festival Where Words Come Alive

The Last Word will be ours!

We are finally opening our doors to welcome you back for seven days of electric performance at this year’s The Last Word Festival. Bringing to you a programme of exciting talent and the boldest stories from some of the capital’s most vital voices both on stage and online. We will be celebrating the 15th anniversary of our prestigious Roundhouse Poetry Slam, where a host of trailblazing Spoken-Word artists will battle it out for the coveted title of Slam Champion and what’s more, best-selling author Candice Carty-Williams joins the judging panel! From the mighty Letters Live, to Roundhouse Resident Artist performances, live podcast recordings and so much more, why not come back to us with a bang this summer? We’ve missed you!
