The Sofa Slam: April 2019

  • The White House 884 Green Lane Dagenham, England, RM8 1BX United Kingdom (map)

It's been one year since the Sofa Slam first came bursting into our lives, and we're having an extra special celebration! Featuring slam champion Willie Gowans, rising star Shannon Pengelly, and Boomerang Club's Antonia Jade King.

The Sofa Slam is Barking & Dagenham's first ever poetry slam. Hosted at the White House in Dagenham, the Sofa Slam follows slam tradition: bringing poetry to the people, into the home.

Come along on Saturday April 27th at 7pm to enjoy an evening of outstanding free poetry, or sign up to win a prize in the slam.

The Sofa Slam is accompanied by a free workshop 3:30-6:00pm, titled 'But It Doesn't Make Sense!' where we will explore sense, nonsense, and poetry logic and make some brilliant new poetry. This workshop is welcome to both newcomers and seasoned pros, everyone has something to share and something to learn.
