We put on dynamic, entertaining and immediate performance poetry events in venues throughout the UK and internationally, from bars and pubs to major theatres.
We engage poets at all stages of their careers: from big name headline acts to those standing up at an open mic for the first time.
We provide a range of masterclasses, workshops and events for poets to learn and develop the art of performance poetry.
Our work is focused on emerging and developing artists in performance and education but we also work with established artists to encourage their ongoing careers.
Apples and Snakes creates and supports all sorts of projects, from spoken word shows on tour to education programmes.
We are currently creating a digital Spoken Word Archive, preserving a cultural heritage that has reflected and influenced many social and political movements for over 30 years.
