Jess Green

Finished run

AGES: 14+
TICKETS: £8/£6

Created and compered by JESS GREEN,  Find the Right Words  is now firmly established as one of Leicester’s best spoken word and rap nights, which includes two nationally acclaimed headline acts, ten open mic spots (sign ups from 7.00pm) and the increasingly sought after speed poet spot. The show was nominated for the SABOTEUR AWARDS 2018 and Jess won the BBC EDINBURGH FRINGE SLAM 2018. With the support of the never knowingly mainstream BURNING EYE BOOKS, Jess makes sure you get to hear the UK’s top performance poets making the biggest noise in spoken word. The headliners this month are:-

DANIEL PIPERAuthor, comedian and national poetry slam champion. He has been seen/heard on national TV/radio and has toured across the UK and Europe, at festivals including Latitude, Bestival and Edinburgh International Book Festival. He has written and performed two smash-hit Edinburgh Fringe shows. Daniel is the 2017 Scottish National Poetry Slam champion. Daniel’s debut book, Arbitrary and Unnecessary: The Selected Works of Daniel Piper, was published by Unbound in 2018.
TINA SEDERHOLM – Has travelled a curious career path from International event rider to performance poet, raconteur and author. An intermittent idealist, reluctant feminist and recovering workaholic, this veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe has written and performed four critically acclaimed solo shows, The Good Delusion, Evie and the Perfect Cupcake, Till Debt Us Do Part and Everything Wrong With You is Beautiful and has won over 20 poetry slams.
