Verbose Spoken Word Poetry


19:30 - 22:00, Thu 10 Mar 2022

Verbose brings a vibrant mix of spoken word and live literature from a talented bill of open mic acts and wonderful headliners. We are thrilled for the opportunity to bring our event to an even bigger stage at Ducie St. Warehouse, with three of the UK’s best and brightest headlining the event alongside our always-excellent open mic acts. Expect poetry, prose and everything in between from a real community vibe that gladly welcomes all newcomers.

To apply for an open mic slot please email us at – Please note that unlike our monthly events this is NOT first come first served. For as much fairness as possible on a bigger stage, nine writers will be picked at random after the application window closes. The application window starts on Tuesday 8th of February and will end at midnight on Tuesday 15th of February.
