Join us for this year's Grand Slamovision Finale, a whole evening celebrating spoken word from outstanding poets across the world!
Doors open at 6 pm with a chance to mingle in the Creatives Fair or browse the Five Leaves bookstall. You'll have time to check out a new art exhibition inspired by Sabba Khan's The Roles We Play, a collaboration between NTU student writers and visual artists.
From 7 pm, the Slamovision Finale begins, co-hosted by Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature's (NUCoL) Hannah Trevarthan and WRAP's Becky Cullen. You'll see the entries from cities of Literature around the world, as well as live performances from last year’s winner, Nottingham’s Cara Thompson and our current champion Abiọ́dún (Abbey) Abdul. Including a showcase of some of our very best local creative talent, we'll be crowning this year's winning poem and city.
Make sure to stick around for an Open Mic Afterparty in the Metronome bar. Co-hosted by WRAP and NUCoL's Speak Easy, you can sign up for a slot on the night. See you there!
The finals are co-hosted by Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature and Curated & Created, NTU's extra-curricular and public arts programme.
