Poetry Jam V Birthday Special

Poetry Jam V Birthday Special | Thursday 8th February | Birmingham Town Hall | 7 'Til Late | Free

Celebrate our fifth birthday with a Poetry Jam special hosted at Town Hall by THSH.

Poetry Jam is a monthly open mic platform to jam, perform and click, where spoken word artists take to the mic to tell stories about themselves and the world - unfiltered*, unapologetic and united. The night is a beautiful combination of first timers and established poets. Everyone is welcome.

You can expect open mic performances, mini-rave music interludes from our resident DJ, Chakraman and an afterparty to bring the celebration late into the night. In addition Town Hall will be transformed into a unique, never before seen layout allowing equally for consumption of poetry and ease of rave.

To commemorate the 5th Birthday you'll also be able to buy a new Anthology featuring the works from young people who have performed at previous Poetry Jams as well as a limited edition t-shirt.

This is a night for all of us. Celebrating the people behind the journey, the movement, the legacy of Poetry Jam.

Open mic sign-up available: 6:00pm (meet in the foyer of Town Hall)

Doors open: 6:30pm
