BIG WORD, EDINBURGH: Thursday 18th October

THE BIG WORD in Edinburgh

First cabaret of the season!
8.30 doors, show 9-11.30pm.
£4/3 concs.

Featuring: KEVIN CADWALLENDER, Rachel Jury, ROBIN CAIRNS, The Big Word Slam Winners (Bram Gieben, Graeme Hawley, Stephen Barnaby) PLUS music from DOMINIC WAXING LYRICAL. Hosted by Jenny Lindsay. 07989 508 436

The Big Word's first cabaret of the season is upon us. Following an all new-style Slam in September, Big Word plans to keep the lyrical fires burning with a season of the best local, national, (and the occasional international) poets.

The bill features published poet KEVIN CADWALLENDER, who will read from his new collection Colouring In Guernica. Glasgow's finest, and host of Last Monday At Rio ROBIN CAIRNS , and Confab producer and poet RACHEL JURY make a welcome return. Not to be missed: the infamous and inimitable DOMINIC WAXING LYRICAL makes an appearance, PLUS the finalists from September's Slam STEPHEN BARNABY (3rd place), GRAEME HAWLEY (2nd) and BRAM GIEBEN!

Edinburgh's longest running and always evolving poetry cabaret guarantees to amuse, astonish and possibly make you choke on The Jazz Bar's finest hops. A wildly diverse bill kicks off the season, and continues on THE THIRD THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH.
