Writers’ Bloc Presents: A Multi-Team Inter-University Poetry Slam
This Thursday, Writers' Bloc will be representing the University of Birmingham in a multi-team inter-university Poetry Slam against Pembroke College (Cambridge) and Cardiff University. It's happening on home-turf: the beloved Writers' Bloc pub, the Bristol Pear.
Brought to you by Ben Norris, the mastermind behind Writers' Bloc's famous Grizzly Pear, and hosted by Chazz Redhead, this night is set to be one of the biggest in multi-team inter-university Poetry Slam history.
You will be choosing which university takes home the crown by voting for your favourite poem and poet of each round. If none of this makes sense, then Sacrificial Poet Ben Jackson will be on hand to give you an introduction to all things Slam.
Venue: The Bristol Pear
Tickets: On the door, £3 WB members, £4 non-members
