A night of spoken word and poetry hosted at Jimmy’s in The Northern Quarter – every third Thursday of the month, typically 7.30pm onwards.

Hosted by Zach Slater, ten open mic slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis – an opportunity to perform work on-stage to an audience. For a slot email contactspeakpoetry@gmail.com.

The night also features a guest speaker or poet who have in the past included Matt Abbott and Geneviève L. Walsh. Other memorable performances have included Rosie Fleeshman, actor and writer with her piece ‘Grammar Nazi’, and headliner of ‘Speak’ number 3, Gerry Potter with ‘Battered Blue’.

‘Speak’ is a vibrant and welcoming environment for people to come along and share their work.
