Now with a new start time of 7.30pm.
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.
