We're marking our fifth birthday with a bang. For one night only, we're partnering with Birmingham Town Hall to showcase how far we've all come, from the 4,000 young people that have taken to the open mic at Poetry Jam, to the creative leaders of tomorrow that have touched base at different points in the Beatfreeks movement to the entire community that are doing big things for themselves and the city.
You can expect open mic performances, mini-rave music interludes from our resident DJ, Chakraman and an afterparty to bring the celebration late into the night. In addition Town Hall will be transformed into a unique, never before seen layout allowing equally for consumption of poetry and ease of rave.
To commemorate the 5th Birthday you'll also be able to buy a new Anthology featuring the works from young people who have performed at previous Poetry Jams as well as a limited edition t-shirt.
This is a night for all of us. Celebrating the people behind the journey, the movement, the legacy of Poetry Jam.
Open mic sign-up available: 6:00pm (meet in the foyer of Town Hall)
