2009 Slam Final, plus special guest, Tim Clare.
Three rounds, 9 finalists, one winner...
Charlie Dupre, Charlie Wright, MC Angel, Richard Tyrone-Jones, Andre Mangeot, Catherine Brogan, Charlie Creed-Miles, Wayne Alexander, Joshua Niecho.

For Hammer and Tongue's last competitive slam of the season the very best of London's slamming fraternity (winners of H&T slams over the past year) will be gathering at Camden's Green Note Cafe to supplicate you, the judging audience, to their will through the power of
the spoken word. Winner goes on to compete in the H&T national final at the Brighton festival next month.

We are also delighted to feature the eclectic, story-spinning genius that is Tim Clare. Author, poet and musician, Clare is a doyen of Glastonbury, Latitude and has aired his witty drivel on Radios 1 and 2. Described by the Sunday Times as a ‘highlight of the spoken word scene’, Clare describes himself as ‘‘Bob Hoskins going mental in a dustbin'.

It’s going to be a busy one so come along early to grab a seat and don’t forget to watch out for Hammer and Tongue on TV! The H&T slam, featuring Excentral Tempest, Scroobius Pip, Micheal Horowitz, Tuggstar, Rob Gee, and Marcus Dellar will form part of Griff Rhys
Jones’ Why Poetry Matters series which will be screened in the week of May 17.
