BIRMINGHAM: 'Rhymes' @ The Custard Factory

Thursday, 30th July, 2009, 8pm, £5
The Custard Factory Theatre,
Gibb Street
B9 4AA

Jimmy Fantastik is alright. Last stop was Hull where the organisers of the Love Poetry Hate Racism gig said he was right and shook him by the hand. He's also been published by the great Wrote Under Publishing Co-Operative and is now in the National Academy of Writing.

Spoken word artist Adrian “Poetic” Mckenzie burst on to the scene with an exciting blend of poignant rhymes and smooth wordplay. His lyrical dexterity has captivated UK and overseas audiences, always one to watch.

George Too Quick aka 'PoshBoy' - has spent the last few years honing his poetic craft. He will be performing pieces from his new one-man show. How could tulips, bees and rap music inspire a person to give up their job and rely on poetry to provide a living? Join George for an evening of wit, wisdom and sharing guaranteed to have you leave with a smile on your face and maybe one or two new perspectives to play with.
