Final of the Hackney Empire Spice Festival Slam CHANGED to July 16th!‏

Unfortunately, due to personal reasons US slam poetry star Daniel Beaty has unavoidably had to pull out of his UK shows at the Hackney Empire on the 22nd July.

As previously advertised, the plan was to hold the final of the Spice Festival slam before his show on the evening of the 22nd. Due to that show being cancelled I will now be presenting the final as part of the charity event 'Voices in Harmony' at 7.30pm on Weds the 16th July. 'Voices in Harmony' will be a top show featuring acapella human beatbox group the Magnets, Crisis, Kat Francois and a whole host of other fantastic poets and perfomers on the main stage of the Hackney Empire. 2-for-1 ticket offers are available at the slam heats or just phone the Box Office on 02089852424 quoting '2-for-1 offer'!:

The winner of the first highly fun yet hotly-contested round was Saran Green. The dates of the heats remain unchanged, on the 8th and 15th in the Marie Lloyd Bar, 7.30pm, FREE. The overall winner will still also win a slot in the final of the talent show '291' on the main stage on the 25th July! Due to pull-outs there are two slots now available on the 15th - turn up early as they'll go to the first to turn up and ask! Don't forget we are still after unbiased judges for the slam heats on the 8th and 15th July - judges get a free pint!
