Information:

We're b-b-b-b-back again!

This time we have tickets! If you fancy nabbing a cheaper ticket get on them early birds!

We will be graced by 8 of you wonderful slammers who will compete to be a part of the regional final in June.

SIMON MUNNERY also known as his characters "Alan Parker: Urban Warrior" and "The League Against Tedium", is an English comedian. His stand-up is often satirical and political and almost always surreal.

BIRDSPEED is a storyteller in prose, poetry and dance. Born in London, raised in Barbados, Birdspeed is dedicated to uplifting, empowering and inspiring people through cultural integrity, especially marginalised and disadvantaged communities. Though she was only introduced to the spoken word scene late 2016 she emerged a year later as a force to be reckoned with. She is known for her ability to effortlessly weave storytelling and movement. Her unique style has been captivating and impressing audiences across England and New York so much so she has been consistently dubbed “The Firebird.” Her work is often a combination of social commentary and auto-biographical tales including themes on Afrofuturism and Caribbean folklore and feminism.

Her most notable spoken word appearances this year include performing at the Bristol Old Vic and WOMAD festival. She will also be representing Bristol at the UK Slam Championships in 2019 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Fancy Slamming? Know Your Rules:

Slammers are chosen at random from the sign-up list to perform – spoken word only, no music, no props. Each competitor has 3 minutes from the time they start talking on the mic. After 10 seconds’ grace period, they start losing points (1 point for every 10 seconds!). At the end, they’re given points out of 10 by 5 judges chosen from the audience, while the top and bottom scores are removed to ensure fairness. The slammer gets a score out of 30, and the competition moves on.

The winner of that evening’s competition goes through to the Regional Final (the Bristol one is in June), and the winner (and runner-up) of the Regional Final goes through to the National Final. The winner of the National Final gets crowned H&T National Slam Champion.
