wordPLAY returns in aid of Cancer Research UK

Matt Thorne + Carol Oheema + Jack Kelly + Leslie Tetteh + Liz Adams + Sophie Buchan + Sam Buchan Watts

wordPLAY is very pleased to announce that we are returning to the Good Ship in Kilburn for a one-off charity special on Tuesday 15th March in aid of Cancer Research UK. Booker nominee Matt Thorne will be headlining alongside dynamic poetry sensation Carol Oheema, cult Clinic founder Sam Buchan Watts presenting his lyrical take on modern life, as well as a peppering of new and established writers as guest stars ready for a riotous evening of explosive, inspiring and wonderful words.

wordPLAY has been North London’s foremost spoken word event since its beginnings in 2009, and has played host to a wide array of writers such as Laura Dockrill, Kate Tempest, Bernadine Evaristo, Edinburgh award-winning comedian Tim Key, TS Eliot-winning Poet George Szirtes, author of 'Return to The Hundred-Acre Wood' (the Winnie the Pooh sequel) David Benedictus, and an eclectic array of guest stars who are generally less established/unpublished yet generally wonderful writers, varying from traditional poets to MCs, beatboxers and freestylers to prose writers and storytellers.
