Cambridge’s well loved regular spoken word fixture is back again for March
On Friday 4 March from 7.15pm, things are getting lyrical at the Junction. Spoken word and slam poetry fixture on the Cambridge calendar, Hammer & Tongue sees eight young poets compete for the chance to move on to the regional final in September; at the national stage they’ll compete against lyricists from Oxford, London, Brighton and Bristol. Jonny Fluffypunk will headline the event with poetry that’s politically disillusioned and bittersweet in its autobiographical nature, and he’ll be supported by Caroline Teague, known in the digital realm and through her music as “Caroline Smiling”. She’s a woman who uses songwriting and spoken word poetry as an outlet for her sentimental musings.
Tickets are £7.50, unless you’re planning to take the plunge and be a slammer, in which case it’s just £4.
