An evening of spoken word

An evening of spoken word
Date: Friday 13 May 2011
Time: 6.45pm for 7pm start
Venue: Woolfson & Tay Bookshop, Café, Gallery, Bermondsey Square,
London SE1 3UN

Ever been to a gig where the performers tell stories? No music. No instruments. Just words. Tales. Narratives. Ever seen three people share a stage and share their stories to entertain? That’s spoken word.

Hear Polar Bear, Joshua Idehen and Inua Ellams use rhyme and rhythm to bring stories to life at Woolfson & Tay on May 13th. They’ll take you through their imaginations and bring you into their lives.

This unique event is free to the first 50 members who email Rachel Moore at

There are another 26 tickets available to non-members. They’re £5 each. If you’d like to invite friends, please ask them to email Rachel so we get their names on the guest list. They can pay on the door.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Oh, if you’ve never experienced spoken word, here’s Polar Bear with ‘Jessica’. Enjoy.
