Poets in the City returns for another year with an evening of poetry, performance, and spoken word.

Celebrating the start of Black History Month and headlined by local poets Saili Katebe/The Blissful Nomad and Malaika Kegode, the night's theme will be Black Histories; Black Futures. Doors open 18:30 for a 19:00 start.

Saili Katebe is a rising star of the Bristol poetry scene. Having won Milk Poetry's All Star slam in 2018, Katebe is going from strength-to-strength. Also known as The Blissful Nomad, Katebe writes for the page as well as the stage - he is not one to be missed.

Malaika Kegode is a Bristol based poet. Having run Milk Poetry for over four years, Kegode works at the heart of the scene - helping others to nurture their voice whilst she demonstrates her own mastery of the format, MCing the regular showcases Milk Poetry put on. You can catch more of Kegode's work whilst at Arnolfini - her words punctuate the building.
