Spoken word poetry is at the heart of what we do, and as well as producing UK tours, we host regular #LIVEwire nights between Leeds and London as well as at music festivals around the country.

Our first UK tour took place in May 2017 to support the release of Salena Godden‘s ‘LIVEwire’ album, and we’re also co-producers on Matt Abbott‘s 22-date autumn 2018 tour of ‘Two Little Ducks’.

We host a quarterly ‘LIVEwire’ night at Seven Arts in Leeds. Our next event takes place on Thu 13 Dec and stars Iona Lee and Sarah Crutwell. The night is Pay As You Feel, and the Facebook event is here.


LIVEwire poets of 2018

Nymphs & Thugs | LIVEwire 2018

These were all of our ‘LIVEwire’ poets of 2018; starting with the UN Women #HeForShe event in London at the start of the year, and then Byline Festival in Sussex in the summer, and also our quarterly event in Leeds.


We’re already planning for our 2019 live schedule, but if you’re interested in collaborating with us on an event – whether it be a ‘LIVEwire’ event or one of your own – feel free to contact us.

Please note that we don’t act as a booking agent for our individual artists. We act as a go-between for our artists, and also work with a vast network of poets around the UK.
