BOOM Sep 4: Birdspeed, Shaun Hill, Beth Calverley, The Victoria, Wednesday, 04. September 2019

WE'RE HERE!!! The first season of new monthly Brum poetry night BOOM is upon us and what a line-up we have for you!
BOOM is a new monthly poetry night for Brum which will take place on the first Wednesday of each and every month. Each night will have a national poetry headliner along with two local or emerging features. There will be a set amount of open mic opportunities - arrive early to sign up. Our regular host is Leon Priestnall (HOWL), our house DJ is DJ Grit'n'grind (formerly Hit The Ode). Can you afford not to be a regular attender at BOOM? Can you REALLY?
The headliner of our season opener is the glorious BIRDSPEED!! who weaves an incredible display of poetry and movement during her performances. She is the 2019 Hammer and Tongue UK National Slam Champion and currently holds the title of Manhattan Arts Festival Poet Laureate. Notable UK venue headline appearances include The Bristol Old Vic (UK) and WOMAD festival.  Birdspeed has also headlined at significant US venues such as: the Bowery Poetry Club (NYC) and The African American Centre (Philadelphia). This is a must see performer!!
Supporting her are two wonderful poets - Birmingham based Shaun Hill and Bristol based Beth Calverley. They are both wonderful if very different performers and we are thrilled to be able to bring them to you now.
Tickets on the door will be £6, so it's cheaper to book online.:) Also online ticket buyers will be entered into a prize draw to receive two free tickets to the October 2 BOOM :)
We look forward to welcoming you!
