Swindon Slam 2013 at the Arts Centre

Hosted with charm and good cheer by Marcus Moore and Sara-Jane Arbury and played, applauded, and enjoyed by YOU!
Arts Centre
Old Town, Swindon
Saturday 11 May 2013

Welcome to the seventeenth Swindon Slam! an opportunity for poets of any age, experience, or pedigree to take their gaze off the page and do it on stage; to share their verve and verse with a supportive and appreciative audience; to seize their moment to stanza and deliver!

This is what happens. Poets who want to have a go, apply to enter as soon as possible. Number of competitors is limited number of applaudience is not! On the night, competing poets are called up on stage to perform for three minutes each. From then on, its a knockout! Kindly judges, chosen from the kindly audience, decide who inspires and who expires.

But whatever their fate, all competitors can expect a rush of adrenalin, roars of applause, chunks of chocolate, and showers of flowers. Everyone is a winner and gets a prize, even if its only a choccy haiku. But only one poet becomes the seventeenth Swindon Slam! champion and carries off the bubbly-filled trophy.

If you want to compete, ring the referee on 01285 640470 or e-mail john.marcus.moore@gmail.com 

Ticket Prices: 8, Concession 7

Doors: 7.30pm
