Start Up Slam 2: Slam Performance Poetry with Alex Vellis and Henry Maddicott

14th February 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm


Start Up Slam Job Club is a 4-day half-term programme that will run from Tuesday 13th February  to Friday 16th February at No.34, Sittingbourne.

Funded by Kent County Council, it aims to engage young people aged 14 -16 with creative entrepreneurship.

Join us on Wednesday 14th February at No. 34 for a performance poetry session led by Alex Vellis and Henry Maddicott.

They’ll help you create the best poetry, that resonates with you personally, to perform at slams – an event where people read their poems without props, costumes, or music.

This session is only available to those who sign up to our free Start Up Slam programme. For more information visit our Start Up Slam 2 page, email contact@ideastest.co.uk, or call 07713 865955.
