We’ve been working our arse off on this behind the scenes for the last couple of months, and are over the moon to finally announce our next series of ‘LIVEwire’ events. This is the biggest announcement of it’s kind yet, and we’re hoping that it’ll pave the way for us to become an established producer of leading spoken word events.

Firstly, we have four regional ‘LIVEwire’ events: taking place in Manchester (20 Sep), Bristol (13 Nov), Birmingham (22 Feb) and Colchester (29 Apr). These regional events will see either Luke Wright or Salena Godden paired alongside at least one other Nymphs & Thugs artist, plus a guest poet.

As well as these, we have four resident nights at Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds (2 Oct, 4 Dec, 5 Feb and 1 Apr). These events will feature at least one Nymphs & Thugs artist alongside another leading guest poet and also an open mic section, hosted by Matt Abbott.

Finally, we return to Byline Festival for a third year running. Our ‘LIVEwire’ Salon will take place late on the Friday and Sunday nights, and we have no fewer than twelve rebellious renegade poets performing for you at some point over the weekend.
