Join us for another night of "clever, witty and thought-provoking entertainment" at Evidently!

Boasting the fabulous talents of Rosie Garland and hosted by Salford's own Kieren King.

Not to be missed!

Also eight open mic spots are available (one poem - two minutes per poet) on a first come first served basis so if you would like a slot please arrive early to avoid disappointment. We are filming each night so everyone who performs will get a shiny new Youtube video if they want one.

Host, multiple slam winner Kieren King says "If you walk down a street and see three signs, one advertising live music, one advertising live comedy and the third advertising live poetry chances are people would go to either of the first two. We are looking to change that and give people a fun and entertaining night out".

Forget what you learned in school. This is poetry at its best.
