The 5th SFL Poetry Slam

with the Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialists!

The Hive, Belmont, SY1 1TE    Tickets   Full £10   Friends £8   U18 £6

In 2016 three poets held a meeting in a pub in Wolverhampton.  They drank beer.  They talked about poetry.  They hatched plans.  By the end of the evening, they’d decided that they should form a collective – Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialists -and see where that led them.  In 2017, it led them to their first full-length show at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton.  They had a lot of fun.  The audience did, too.

The PPP collective have a few simple aims: 

  1. Convince the world that poetry is a bag of awesome wrapped up with a bow of wonder.
  2. Convince the world to write some poetry.
  3. Convince some of the word to stand up and read that poetry in front of an audience.
  4. Promote and encourage acts.
  5. Particularly ones from the Black Country.
  6. Provide platforms for people to watch and perform poetry.
  7. Have fun!

 

Fun is definitely what happens at the SFL Poetry Slam!  Come along and watch 15 fantastic poets give amazing performances and help decide who wins the prize of a performace spot at Shrewsbury Festival of Literature 2022!
