Missed it on the night? The entire performance of One Mic Stand is still available to watch here.

It’s One Mic Stand, but not as you know it…

On Friday 24 April, spoken word collective Young Identity will be slamming, jamming and having all sorts of fun via a live stream on Contact’s website. This will be the first ever, fully virtual One Mic Stand.

Featuring two very special guest performers, Nasima Bee and CHUNKY as well as guest judges John McGrath, Keisha Thompson and Sharon Raymond.

One Mic Stand online will be free to watch on our website, but donations to support our work are gratefully received. 

Want to take part in the open slam?

One Mic Stand is a poetry slam in which 10 poets are given only 3 minutes each to impress both our audience and judges with their words. They’ll battle it out to gain the top spot and win the grand prize of £50! If you’d like to compete, please register your interest at First timers are very welcome and mentoring can be provided.


Artist Nasima Bee (wearing a pale brown headscarf) holds a microphone in front of a blue background. Artist Chunky holds his hands (wearing blue mittens) to cover the lower half of his face.
