Roundhouse Poetry Slam

Roundhouse Poetry Slam, in partnership with Taylor Wessing, is our annual slam competition. But it’s so much more than that – it’s a celebration of the power of words and the artists who wield them.

Emerging slam poets aged 18-25 showcase their original work at heats across the country, with the top ten poets taking part in a Final at our iconic Main Space. The winner receives a cash prize plus professional development and mentoring support.

Applications for 2024 have now closed. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear when applications for 2025 open.
