"After our first jam packed night at The Jazz Bar on March 22nd, and the BRILLIANT news that we have another year of funding from the SAC, THE BIG WORD is back with more high octane word-smithery (no, not really a word) and top acts from around the country.

ALISTAIR FINDLAY: Author of 'Sex, Death & Football' shows why there shouldn't be a barrier between good performance and good poetry...

ROB GEE: Leicester's verbal dynamo returns!

RICHARD MEDRINGTON & ELSPETH MURRAY: A duet from the brains behind Puppet State and The Man Who Planted Trees. Expect nothing but to be surprised.

RAPUNZEL WIZARD: A rare example of a white person with dreadlocks who is actually entertaining. The Big Word debut for this well-versed slam impresario.

MARK RAFFERTY: Glasgow's favourite comic singer-songwriter takes all of your favourite songs and bastardises them with better, funnier lyrics. A must-see."

Jenny Lindsay, Big Word MC
