For the third year in a row LUU Spoken Word Society present our very own inter-university poetry slam with teams from the North of England! The teams coming to battle it out for poetic glory will be Leeds, Leeds Beckett, Durham, Sheffield and York.

The night will be hosted by the wonderful Rheima Robinson of Leeds' Sunday Practise, with a special guest performance from BEN NORRIS — a writer, actor, and two-time national poetry slam champion, who's appeared everywhere from Latitude Festival to the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.

Performances will be judged by a specially selected panel, including the wonderful Ben Norris, Courtney Conrad, and Henry Raby!

The rules are as follows:
-3 minutes (+10 seconds grace before points are deducted)
-no props/costumes
-no backing music
-performed works must be original

Tickets are available for £5 (£4 for LUUSWS members) either online or on the door.

Doors will open at 6.00pm for a 6:30pm start.
There will be an interval about half way through the event.
Snap up your tickets before they sell out!
