Babble On Poetry Party

Still think of poets as wallflowers hiding in their garrets? You’ve obviously never been to their parties – but tonight’s your night. Hosted by armchair revolutionary Elvis McGonagall, Saturday’s Unbound sees an eruption of wild voices. Ten-time slam champ Vanessa Kisuule, mysterious ‘Poet Laureate of Twitter’ Brian Bilston and New Zealand’s Hera Lindsay Bird – whose poems caused a social media stir earlier this year – all take to the stage, while 2017’s Scottish National Slam winner Daniel Piper shares his special brew of comedic performance poetry. An unmissable, unforgettable night of new verse. Over 18s only.

Part of our Unbound series of events.
