Who’s The Daddy?

Five recently fledged fathers take to the stage for an evening of pop-poetry. Not a dummy in the house.

Matt Harvey

Matt’s bizarre brand of street philosophy has made him a cult-figure on the poetry scene. Arguably Totness’ hottest export


Kindred Spirit’s former host and resident poet, lifts words off the page and breaths life into them. Whether a cappella or with music, his melodic voice and heartfelt words always win us over.

Charlie Dark

Charlie is a modern renaissance man. Not only is he a poet, storyteller and DJ, but also a sharp observer of mankind. He knows a lot about maternity classes too.


Father of one, Darwood cut his teeth in the spoken word band 3+1. With a unique fusion of poetry and hip-hop, he is also a gifted actor.

Compere: Carl Dhiman

Her Elusive Rhythms

Three Women, three voices, three rhythms

Apples & Snakes scoop exclusive previews of novels-in-progress by poets-gone-prose: Malika Booker, Jean Binta Breeze and Misfit.

Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, writer, actress and poet was awarded a NESTA grant for her forthcoming novel, which transforms traditional Caribbean choreography into a literary form.

Malika, the front woman of Malika’s Poetry Kitchen, is the kind of writer who turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. She is regarded as something of a poetry ambassador via her work with the British Council around the world.

Misfit’s performances are a passionate hybrid of song and spoken word, all delivered with a distinctive London twang. She has appeared on Radio 3’s The Verb. Hip-hop rhymes meet dreamy metaphors and jazzy vocals.

Have I Got Poems For You?

Hold the front page! Quick-witted bards do battle in current affairs quiz. Alleged.

Questionmistress – Chloe Poems

Fun to be with, frivolous and more controversial than Angus Deayton

Team Captain – Luke Wright

Luke is the mainstay of Aisle 16, the up and coming hit of Glastonbury last year. His poetry cuts a swathe through popular culture. Nothing is safe from his razor-sharp rhymes and vitriolic verse-forms.

Team Captain – Denrele
Sassy, sussed and saucy, specialising in love and other sexually-transmitted diseases, Denrele is very much our home affairs correspondent.
