Malika Booker
Internnational writer, poet, storyteller, theatre maker and beyond, prepare to be transported into a million worlds of words and visions as the legendary Malika Booker reads, talks and plays with our ears, hearts and minds.

GECKO (Will Sanderson Thwaite)
Bringing to the stage his playful lyrics covering the big things in life; think Grant Mitchell, Libraries & Guanabana fruit juice to name but a few. Witty, heartfelt words backlit to guitar melodies.
'It made me instantly happy when I heard it'
Huw Stephens - BBC Radio 1
'Guaranteed to put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces...an absolute favourite'
Gary Crowley - BBC London Introducing

Maria Ferguson
‘Extremely moving, Yet deeply witty’ The Independent
Essex writer and performer Maria is a slam champion spoken word artists, unashamed, honest and thought provoking. Fat Girls Don’t Dance was her debut show, a brilliant exploration of our relationship to the ‘F’ word.

Conor Ryan Macleod
Bristol comedy stand up poet cuts his absurdist sharp teeth on the forked stage.
‘Definitely one to watch. ’ - Raise the Bar Spoken Word
‘Electric.’ - Bristol Voices
