Young Identity are Manchester’s finest young spoken word performers, working in partnership with Contact for the last 10 years. Join us for a boisterous night of poetry and music.
One Mic Stand is centred around a Poetry Slam, in which 10 poets are given only 3 minutes each to wow the audience with their lyrical mastery and charismatic delivery to battle it out to gain the top spot and win the grand prize of £50!
A hotbed of upcoming talent, this edition features Tukaiisloveletter, an extraordinary poet, singer, songwriter and producer who took part in BBC 1Xtra Words First; and poet/playwright Joelle Taylor, one of the BBC Hull 17 poets and SLAMbassadors founder.
This event takes place at Band On The Wall
Band On The Wall, 25 Swan St, Manchester M4 5JZ
Presented by Contact and Young Identity.
Directed by Young Identity and Wordsmith.
