Creed Street,

Described by John Hegley as “a very special poetry Sunday”, Tongue in Chic continues to bring the best Poets it can find to Milton Keynes. In only their second year, Tongue in Chic is now an established event with a growing reputation on the National Spoken Word circuit. It has already earned the accolade:

On Sunday 9 May, we welcome headliner DIZRAELI, a rapper, writer, poet and singer described as a hip hop tour de force. His work covers a wide range of subjects including politics, love, rain, supermarkets, grief, drug culture and masculinity. Diz won the Spirit of the Fringe award two years running at the Edinburgh Festival and his work is a rare hybrid of humour and directness that can make you wince. Diz has won major Poetry Slams including the BBC Radio 4 National Poetry Slam

The Tongue in Chic Crew aren’t content to stay in Milton Keynes. They’ve reached out to the capital and beyond, making friends and impressing the hell out of them. Now it’s their turn to visit us. Tongue in Chic took a showcase slot on 15 April down in London and this is the return event. Daniel Cockerill, Rob Auton, Martin Galton and Sjanneke Milligan will be giving us a taste of their gunslinging ways as they shoot from the lip.

Open Mic spots are available so you can have your three minutes of fame and Open Mic performers can get tickets at the concession rate.

Host Mark Niel is also rapidly making a name for himself with recent gigs in Peterborough, Cardiff and Cheltenham. Mark was also nominated for the Best Performance by a UK Poet in the annual Farrago Spoken Word Awards.
