The Third Shrewsbury Festival of Literature Poetry Slam

Date: November 23, 2019
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: The Hive, 5 Belmont, Shrewsbury SY1 1TE

The SFL Poetry Slam is an absolute blast! 15 (or thereabouts) incredible performers share their work and are then judged, in heats, by the audience. This is a competition ( you have 3 minutes ). A full on, explosive competiton. And it is a huge amount of fun. So don’t miss it this year…

2017’s Festival saw the first SFL Poetry Slam and the winner was Brenda Read Brown, who won an opportunity to perform at last year’s Festival. She hosted the Poetry Brunch and was, once again, a great success.

2018’s winner, Jason N Smith, will be performing at this year’s Festival in support of Friday’s headline act – Dean Atta.

2019’s winner is, as yet, unknown but they will also have the chance to perform at next year’s Festival.

The whole shebang is masterminded by the Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialist Collective.

Tickets are £10 (£6 for under 21) available from
