Upstairs Words and Jess Green present...

Find The Right Words (October)

Compere: 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 in 2018 and Jess won the BBC Edinburgh Fringe Slam the same year. 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:-

Hannah Raymond-Cox – Award-winning spoken word poet, actor and writer living and working in London. She cares deeply about food, trains, and memes long dead. From Hong Kong, San Francisco, and currently living in the jungle of London, Hannah has with her “subtle rhymes” made audiences around the world giggle nervously.
Daniel Cockrill – His words have appeared in books, newspapers, magazines, on gallery walls and have been spoken out loud on stage, radio and television. He is the Co-founder of Bang Said The Gun and Page Match and is published by Burning Eye. He lives and works in London.

Veg’An Love Pop-Up Kitchen: Delicious pies and pizza available from 6.00pm onwards. Pre-order with your tickets or pay on the night (Info).
