Since our beginnings at the Adams Arms pub in 1982, London, we’ve been creating artistic and social change through the power of the spoken word.

As England’s leading organisation for performance poetry and spoken word, we’ve developed worked with artists such as Billy Bragg, Jenny Eclair, Phil Jupitus and Jackie Kay, and more recently Lemn Sissay, Francesca Beard, Malika Booker, Zena Edwards, Charlie Dark and Polarbear.  We’ve inspired the next generation of artists to write and perform their own work all over the UK.
