Spoken Word

Cheltenham Poetry Festival is delighted to be bringing some of the most exciting names on the spoken word scene to Wychwood again this year!

A feisty feast of stand-up, hip hop, comedy and poetry is on offer this year from the Cheltenham Poetry Festival posse who includes Jim Higo, punk poet and darkly funny social commentator. Claire Ferguson Walker, stand-up poet and singer will also be on the bill, as will Miserable Malcolm, aka The Poet of Doom! Hip hop performer and spoken word performer JPDL will be entertaining festival goers and Chris Hemingway will be performing a mixture of songs and poety. Completing the line-up will be KA Poetry with edgy spoken word and stand-up poet Samantha Samms.

Alongside their performances some of these poets will be sharing their skills with writing and performance workshops.
