Great Northern Slam Spring 2019: Northern Stage


Follow a night of high octane, adrenaline-fueled entertainment with the Great Northern Slam Spring 2019 on 14th March 2019 at Northern Stage. It’s poetry but not as we know it.

Slam Poetry is spoken word for the 21st Century. Sixteen of the best slam poets in the North have three minutes each to wow the audience with words and delivery. In each round the audience votes to eliminate poets until only two are left to battle it out for the prize, pride and the glory of becoming Great Northern Slam Champion. Hosted by Jeff Price, this is a night of high octane, adrenaline-fueled entertainment. 

Special guest David C. Johnson has toured his brand of witty, quirky performance poetry all over the USA, and headlined Austin International Poetry Festival 2018. For further information and booking please visit the venue website here
