In these extraordinary times, we’re trying something new!

Beginning on Wednesday 15 April, Apples and Snakes @ Home is an uplifting (and experimental!) five-episode series of one-hour live streamed spoken word gigs, culminating in an exciting grand finale (TBA).

Incorporating performance and conversation and bringing together leading spoken word poets from across the UK – including Polarbear, Vanessa Kisuule, Dizraeli, Travis Alabanza and many more – Apples and Snakes @ Home explores ways to digitally connect artists with each other and with our audiences, nationally and across the globe.

As we find ourselves distanced physically from one another, we know how vital it is to continue supporting artists and the wider spoken word community through this time of change and uncertainty. That’s why we’re excited to continue our work, finding new ways to connect and to push the boundaries of what poetry is and can be.

Time to experience Apples and Snakes @ Home! We’d love for you to join us in the coming weeks on Wednesday evenings, 7-8pm, over on Apples and Snakes’ YouTube channel.
