“The best live poetry is to be found at the Hammer & Tongue slam” Sunday Times

Oxford’s finest home-grown spoken word night is back with cake, chaos and its very own brand of raucous, energetic and thought-provoking performance poetry. This month we have award winning rhymes from UK Slam Champion John Berkavich, Gay Socialist Transvestite Poet Chloe Poems as well as the furious Angry Sam, who is fresh back from his international debut in Denmark earlier this month.

We will of course also have the open slam so anyone who wants to test out their rhymes on a willing and pliable audience, rock up at 7.30, the first 8 performers to sign up will slam so pass the word round and come and give it a go. We had some really wicked poets turn up and slam last month and are expecting a bevy of bright new performers from London and beyond, so get involved!
