It's the final poetry slam of the H&T Hackney 2020-21 season. Co-Host, Fausta Joly also brings their poetry workshop to the HT_Hackney crowd - offering an hour of exercises designed to free the mind and pen. You will leave with at least two poems! Kicks off at 6.30pm via Zoom. Purchase a combined ticket here or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more info.
Every month since October, wordsmiths have been doing battle - taking to the H&T stage to impress, entertain, move and amaze. Judged by randomly selected members of the audience, we have one last winner to find before the end of season final. And on Tuesday 1st June we will find them!
Join us for one last online evening before the Great Unlocking and the Grand Final, to see the season's ultimate slam and to witness a spoken word feature set from the amazing Sami Rhymes!

We know you're all Zoomed out, be we do Zoom better than most. Here's what our feature guests have said:
"that was my favourite Zoom experience of the entire 13 months! It was such a lovely atmosphere and the warmth was almost tangible. Really high quality of stuff performed too. And the music was great. I can't effuse enough!"
