VERSES are a community based poetry night who have been putting on nights across East London since 2018.

With a strong emphasis on showcasing the best talent from across the UK, VERSES have worked in venues across London to put on eclectic nights of word and verse. Seeking to make poetry accessible and affordable, all of their events are free and now they are bringing their show to the Roundhouse as part of the Last Word Festival 2022.

The event will be headlined by some of the country’s leading spoken word performers showcasing their lyrical creativity on topics such as racism, gender, sexuality, relationships and mental health. VERSES celebrates the art of spoken word which includes having a select number of Open Mic slots which will be available to sign up for on the night. Expect unpredictable, heartfelt and hilarious spoken word.
