Described by some as definitively the best thing ever to grace the shores of our lovely little island ever ever ever, wordPLAY is a refreshingly different and eclectic night of spoken word in all of its forms.
October's line-up upholds wordPLAY's fast-growing reputation for excellent quality writers and writing and for doing things that little bit differently.
Die-hard lit-lovers and curious/dubious newcomers alike all have a really rather rocking time at the wordPLAY events, so don't be irrevocably foolish and miss out
Our licentious line-up:
The Pencil Stringhorn http://www.phrasedandconfused.co.uk/?page_id=133: founded in 2009, and situated somewhere between roots manuva and an acoustic department of eagles, Pencil Stringhorn is a original, East London take on spoken word/folk. Featuring Joshua Idehen on Vocals (Benin City), Jon Cottle (Clare And the Reasons) on Electric Cello and Stewart George (UGuru) on Sax, they'll be showcasing material from their successful festival commission.
