LIVEwire Birmingham took place at The Hippodrome on Saturday 22 February, as part of Verve Poetry & Spoken Word Festival. We had sets from Salena Godden, oakley, Toria Garbutt and Saili Katebe, with Matt Abbott on hosting duties.

These video highlights were filmed and edited by Verse First. Huge thanks to Verve for having us, and to everybody that came along and made it such a special night. Next stop, Essex…

Huge thanks also to Thom Bartley for these photos.

Our first regional shows in Manchester and Bristol were two of the best events that we’ve ever run, and I’ve no doubt that Birmingham will be just as good. After a showcase in 2018, we’re returning to Verve Poetry Festival – and this time it’s at the Hippodrome. Tickets are on sale here.
