Swindon Youth Slam at the Arts Centre

Stanza & deliver! Fast-paced, fun-filled, fully-charged, performance poetry
 
Arts Centre
Swindon
Saturday 12 May 2012
 
The heat is on to find the top young poets at this year’s Festival.
 
Each year, the poems and performances get better and better. Audiences will be able to see young people draw words from their imagination and hit the stage with clever and quick-fire wordplay.
 
Following wordshops in schools across the region, delivered by seasoned slammers Sara-Jane Arbury and Marcus Moore, Swindon’s wittiest young wordsters will perform their most slamtastic poetry in a bid to reach the hearts and hearing parts of the audience, with wonderful words!

Who will become Swindon’s Poet Idols and have their names on the prestigious eighth Youth Slam Cup? Listen carefully, think hard, cheer loudly, and discover the truth that makes young minds tick.
 
These are the nine secondary schools taking part in this year’s eighth Swindon Youth Slam:

Churchfields Academy, Commonweal Performing Arts Academy, Highworth Warneford School, Isambard Community School, Kingsdown School, Lydiard Park Academy, St Joseph’s Catholic College, Swindon Academy & Wootton Bassett School

Doors: 11am
