Hammer and Tongue London Open Poetry Slam, featuring Gerry Potter and Laura Dockrill.
London’s feistiest and finest slam night presents two stunning poets to kick off 2010.

Gerry Potter, or the poet known as the successful regeneration of gay scouse socialist transvestite icon Chloe Poems, returns to the H&T London stage sans falsies and frocks to wow and amaze with his brilliant, moving and enlivening work. Author of Planet Young, published by Flapjack Press.

Dockers MC aka Laura Dockrill is not only one of the best dressed poets we know, but a wickedly brilliant storyteller and a shrewd observer of all of life's oddities. She's headlined the poetry stage at Latitude and has won critical acclaim for her books Mistakes in the Background and Ugly Shy Girl, both published by Harper Collins.

They are both absolutely ace, don't miss them!

There are eight slots up for grabs in the open slam, sign up from 7pm on the door to take a place for your chance to win a place in the H&T London final, hosted by Michelle Madsen, Angry Sam and Sophia Blackwell.
