Spoken Word – February

Venue The Reader
Admission £10
Start Time 19:00
End Time 21:00

The Reader’s Spoken Word event for February will feature Liverpool based band, Sunstack Jones, alongside a selection of supporting poets.

Spoken Word events encompass a huge variety of writing and performance styles, from the intimately personal and heart-breaking to the uproariously funny and celebratory. Poetry in all its forms will be the main feature, along with memoirs, stories, monologues and any number of almost-indefinable types of prose!

They recommend this event for adults 18+. Doors 7pm. The Mansion House is wheelchair accessible, for access enquiries please contact:

Rachael Doman
A second appearance for  Rachael at the Mansion House (following her lovely set for the Bandaged Moments poetry evening at last November’s Gravity Festival at The Reader). Rachael is the co-founder of the Magpies and Pigeons poetry collective and her curated show was one of the highlights of at last year’s Smithdown Festival. Rache is a brilliant poet in her own right and her poems of love and loss are an absolute delight.

Saint Vespaluus
Expect tales and poems of the heartbreak caused by the unsolicited comments of Joe Public; the nightmare of being a New Romantic in 1980s Anfield – and how to approach singing songs about Branwell Brontë without causing offence.

Paddy Clarke
Paddy Clarke is a superb musician and brilliantly talented wordsmith. Paddy’s take on one of John Cooper-Clarke’s most famous poems is a work of near-genius. They’re already looking forward to seeing Paddy back at the Mansion House.

Sunstack Jones
They are indeed privileged to welcome one of Britain’s best bands to The Reader. Sunstack Jones are BBC 6 Music regulars and a big favourite on the live circuits. The band has released four beautiful albums which mix ‘indie’, psychedelia and dreampop to stunning effect.

Spoken Word 11 will be a great night!
