Word Up events are poetry evenings hosted at the Tunbridge Wells Forum. The events usually include extended performances from two guest poets and an open mic session for up to eight “slammers”. The Tunbridge Wells Writers have been involved in Word Up evenings, both as performers and supporters, since the project’s launch, and have also contributed to other Word Up events at local festivals and charity fundraisers. If you enjoy top-notch performance poetry from some of the best poets on the local / London circuit then you’ll love Word Up, and at £8.00 a ticket (three quid cheaper – just a fiver! – if you take the plunge and slam) it’s one of the cheapest good nights out around!
