Words in Motion presents: Poetry Goes Pop! with Varjack & Simpson

Hosted by Varjack & Simpson, Poetry Goes POP! promises to be a night of pure entertainment in this comedy panel show!

Two teams of talented performers from the world of stand-up, spoken word and music go head to head. They’ll smash apart classic poetry and destroy contemporary pop in ridiculous games, including ‘Poetry Karaoke’, ‘Britney or Beyonce?’, and ‘Sonnet Boom’! Think Never Mind The Buzzcocks, but with more Wordsworth. Playing with words has never been so fun!

Featuring: Nick Field! Sara Hirsch! Anna Beecher! Ben Fagan! You, the audience!

That’s right – after the ludicrous games, you can get involved and sign up to the open-mic! Anything goes; whether you’re a songwriter, poet or a comedian wanting to test out some new material, everyone is welcome from complete beginners to the most accomplished! So pop in early and sign up on the night.

Sign up is from 7 – 8pm on a first come, first served basis. You can perform up to 2 songs or 10 mins. Covers and/or original material welcome!
