A Pint of Poetry at Peterborough Arts Festival this July

The weekend of the 7th and 8th July will have a shed-load of poetry entertainment in the Spoken Word tent, run by Mark and Keely. This year should be loads of fun, but, more importantly, It's a chance showcase spoken word to the rest of Peterborough.

On the Saturday we've got some of the best spoken word artists in the country, including local artist, Max Melton. We've also got Poets Vs Rappers and the awesome Harry Baker to bring it all to an end. Incredible stuff!

The Sunday is really exciting as well. We've got two original commissions, an hour long Hammer and Tongue Slam, Voyager Academy's Slam team (who are AMAZING!) We've got Mark Neil as our headliner as well - phew!
