At the rough diamond in the crown of the poetry calendar – the Christchurch Poetry Slam – poets set aside the niceties and throw down like their lives depend on it, breathing fire and raising the bar a little more each time over three intense rounds. Did they nail it? YOU be the judge: the audience rules at the Poetry Slam. It’s about the poetry, not the points, so buckle up and don’t forget your hanky. Hosted by Doc Drumheller and Ciaran Fox.

Pleas note: All events are general admission seating. The safety of our audience is paramount: please arrive early, scan in and wear a mask. Audience numbers are capped under COVID Alert Level 2 and social distancing measures will be in place within each venue.

Wednesday, 10 November
Foundation Cafe, Tūranga, 60 Cathedral Square 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm $10 on the door
