Hammer & Tongue is a national performance poetry group with a vision: to bring the best spoken word performers on the circuit today to venues across the UK to share stages with the brightest of local talent. Whether you come to the gigs to be inspired by internationally-renowned performers, to support local poets, or to take a deep breath and plunge onto that stage yourself in the open slam, Hammer & Tongue nights have something for everyone – including people who didn’t think they liked poetry!
Hammer & Tongue tour a different headliner around the local branches every month, and each “franchise” provides the venue, support acts, audience and slammers. At Cambridge, we like to make sure that the support acts are local or have some connection to Cambridge if at all possible. December is no exception, and we’re very excited to announce that Hollie McNish will be supporting Kate Tempest on 14th December at The Fountain Inn, Regent Street for one of the venue’s first gigs after its recent refurbishment.
