He co-hosts Bristol’s leading spoken word night Raise The Bar, is a BBC Poetry Slam runner-up, and a Milk Poetry Superslam winner. In 2019, he was the poet-in-residence for the SS Great Britain.
Erin Bolens is a poet from leeds who writes, teaches and performs in all sorts of weird and wonderful places across the country. Erin's first show 'What We Leave Behind' and first poetry collection 'Alternate Endings' have been published by Burning Eye Books.
Toby Campion is the UK Poetry Slam Champion 2017. Described by BBC Sunday Politics as “the voice of a generation”, Toby's unapologetic words and wit have captured audiences from the Royal Albert Hall to Glastonbury festival, and from Washington DC's poetry cafés to street festivals across Europe.
