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:-
Rachel Nwokoro – Queer multidisciplinary artist of Nigerian heritage, specifically belonging to the indigenous people of Biafra. And she loves telling stories. A young, passionate, disabled woman who wants to use her voice for good, Rachel is unapologetic in communication and dedicated to finding platforms for under-represented voices in the arts industry. Rachel was the first international poet specially invited to be poet-in-residence in Mexico. Rachel’s spends most mosts days with a tired heart and the firm belief that we, together, can and must change the world.
Government advice means we are now closed until further notice. We’re heartbroken for our lovely theatre, our magnificent artists, our loyal audiences & volunteers & all our comrades in the industry. Love to you all. ❤️
