Friday’s launch of ‘Tubthumping’ couldn’t have gone better. We had a healthy crowd from far and wide – with audience members travelling from as far afield as Middlesbrough and Glasgow – and the atmosphere was brilliant from start to finish.

Our next event stars Vanessa Kisuule and Toria Garbutt on Thursday 14 April and tickets are available here!

Some of you will have attended one of our ‘LIVEwire’ events over the last 5 years. And we’ll keep staging them, in various shapes and sizes, whenever the opportunities present themselves. But if ‘LIVEwire’ has a home in Leeds, it’s Hyde Park Book Club. And so, in introducing a regular event in Farsley, we decided to create a new night altogether.

So, we’re dead excited to introduce ‘Tubthumping’, which we’re presenting at The Constitutional in partnership with the team behind Trouble At Mill and The Old Woollen. As always, it’ll provide a rip-roaring evening of the UK’s finest spoken word poetry talent. And we’ll have a showcase section at each event, featuring some of the best emerging talent in West Yorkshire.
