Swindon Festival of Literature 2010 - Swindon Slam!

Arts Centre, Devizes Road
Tel 01793 614837
7.30pm • 8 May • £7 (£6)
 
SWINDON SLAM! – hosted with charm and good cheer by Marcus Moore and Sara-Jane Arbury and played, applauded, and enjoyed by YOU!

Welcome to the fourteenth 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. The number of competitors is limited – the number of applaudience is not!

On the night, competing poets are called up on stage to perform for three minutes each.

From then on, it’s 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, and showers of flowers.

Everyone is a winner and gets a prize, even if it’s only a choccy haiku.

But only one poet becomes the fourteenth Swindon Slam! champion and carries off the bubbly-filled trophy.

If you want to compete, ring the referee on 01285 640470 or e-mail Marcus@spiel.wanadoo.co.uk

Hosting proceedings, juggling judgements, crunching numbers, and presiding with wit, wisdom, and whistle, will be that Spiel-slick duo of MCs, maestro mischief-maker Marcus Moore, and delightful Sara-Jane Arbury.

Tickets - £7 (£6)

Please contact the Arts Centre for any further information.
