Hammer & Tongue returns to Dalston Sep 3rd

After our traditional summer break, we are starting up our 4th season of live poetry events in Hackney. They happen in the backroom of the Victoria pub on the corner of Queensbridge Road / Dalston Lane (E8 3AS). On the first tuesday of every month we put on 2 of the best spoken word artists as well as running an open mic slam, which is a chance for aspiring poets to try out their work to a live audience. We hand the power of judgment to the people! Winners go through to a regional final with chance to win a place in a national competition. We’d love you to join us, it’s a great community vibe, open to anyone and a chance to see for just 5 quid, some of the finest in live poetry from UK and abroad. Next show is Tuesday 3rd September, with doors at 7pm and show from 8-11pm, featuring former UK Slam Champion, Keith Jarrett and H&T founder, me, ‘Angry’ Sam Berkson – both of us having just returned from doing successful one-man shows at the Edinburgh Festival. https://www.facebook.com/events/521796261221734/
