LONDON: Hammer & Tongue Open Poetry Slam

Monday December 1st, 2008, 8pm-11pm, £5/£4
Green Note Café,
106 Parkway,

Hammer and Tongue's last London outing of 2008 brings you the best of slam poetry with an open competition and very special guest, nine time slam winner and festival regular, Byron Vincent.
Byron was (poorly) educated in the cloying conurbation of various northern sink estates. His flowery name and love of language ensured that his journey was a challenging one. Never a defeatist, he fought back with poetry. This was a terrible strategy and he regularly got his head kicked in. Byron has performed at venues as diverse as London's Whitechapel Gallery and Shambala Festival's Bedouin Tent and will be joining a cabal of very special guests at Camden's Green Note café on the 1st.

London's newest, shiniest and feistiest open slam is open to all and the first 8 poets to sign up for the slam on door from 7.30 will compete. Get there early! Winners will go through to the London final next year and win a place in Hammer and Tongue's UK final, pitted against the finest slammers from Oxford and Brighton and then…. on to international stardom.

TO SLAM: Sign up at the door from 7.30, call Michelle on 07809 236 133.
