58. Ledbury Poetry Slam

Sat 8 Jul 2023
7:30pm - 10:00pm | The Market Theatre - Event has now taken place.

Brace yourselves for a knockout night of poetry as worldly wordsmiths take the page onto the stage to compete for points that lead to prizes! In this popular contest, brave bards parade their poems in a bid to reach the hearts and hearing parts of the public. Random judges award points for the quality of writing, performance, and the warmth of the applause, so who will fire on all syllables into the final and become this year’s Ledbury Slam Champion? Join the Master and Mistress of Ceremonies Elvis McGonagall and Sara-Jane Arbury for an energetic evening of good verbal vibrations and lend your support for the do-or-die versifiers taking the risk to stanza and deliver on stage. 

To enter the Slam as a competitor, please contact Sara-Jane on 07814 830031 or email sjarbury@gmail.com   (two online competitor places available).
