The Slam And The Cafe 4

  • Chocolate Cafe 1 Guildhall Street Canterbury,Kent,CT1 2JQ University of Kent (map)

Welcome back to the first slam of the year! 

This month's theme will very much be "Anti-Valentines" so, bring out your poems about lost loves, time alone, why Valentine's day is awful, and the like! 

I will be your host Alex Vellis

We have our resident feature poet Neelam Saredia Poetry performing a ten minute opening set! 

We have the magnificent Henry Maddicott, winner of the the final slam of last year! Headlining a half hour slot! 

And of course, we have the slam! 

Up to twelve slammers will be battaling it out to become the next slam champion!
The slam winner will win a paid headlining slot at the next event! 

Each slammer will read one poem.
There will be a maximum of three minutes per piece before points start getting knocked off. 
The judges will judge on audience reaction, performance, creative writing, and how well the poets stick to the theme. 

If you want a space in the slam, message Alex Vellis. 

It's a fiver on the door. 
Get there between half seven and quarter to eight to secure a place. 

We will be starting at eight sharp.
