A war of words is staged at the Cube
4:00pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
WORTHY wordsmiths will go head-to-head in a war of words next month.
Versatile Arts presents the fifth Malvern Poetry Slam at Malvern Cube in Albert Road North on Friday, November 1, when Brenda Read Brown will defend her title over the course of two rounds.
The poets will battle in verse and wit until the last one is standing, with judges being selected from the audience on the night and awarding points for poetic style, audience response and performance.
Legendary rebel poet and songwriter Attila the Stockbroker will also be giving a set of his sharp-tongued and high-energy work, which is inspired by the spirit and DIY ethos of punk rock.
His themes are topical, his words hard-hitting and his politics unashamedly radical.
Dee Davidson, of Versatile Arts, said: “This will be an excellent evening’s entertainment, the slam is always exciting and with a set from Attila in the second half we expect a full house.
“The audience will get more than its money’s worth.”
Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £7.
