LONDON: Hammer and Tongue Camden

Monday, 9th April 2012, 7.30pm-11pm, £5
Green Note Cafe
106 Parkway
Camden Town

We've got a cracking line-up for H&T Camden in April, alongside the unique, ineffable and jolly MARVELLOUS open poetry slam.

First 8 to sign up on the door get to slam, winner goes on to take a place in the London 2012 final! Usual slam rules apply – original material no props and judges chosen at random from audience members... but remember, the point is not the points, the point is the POETRY!


We're absolutely delighted to be welcoming back to the Green Note Chris Redmond, Tongue Fu founder and a brilliant lyrical story-teller: "A wordsmith wizard, whose sublime art of storytelling in verse is impossible to ignore." - The Poetry Book Society.

We're also VERY excited to be welcoming the brilliant Dean Atta to the Green Note stage for the first time. Sex, race, strange happenings in London – Dean's poetry encompasses all this and more. The Guardian dubbed him the 'i-phone' poet after his rapidly penned verse about Stephen Laurence went viral.
"Dean Atta is one of the leading lights in London's poetry scene. His powerful reflections on race, identity and sexuality have won him recognition from BBC Radio, Channel 4 and the Tate Britain - not to mention a formidable reputation on the spoken word circuit." - Huffington Post"
