SING IT! SPIRIT OF ENVY! - CHORUS FESTIVAL

Come and join a pop-up choir as we learn and belt out a choral song about envy in 3 hours.

We take the traditionally solo emotion of envy and invite you to sing about it  altogether. Made anew with a group of locals wherever it travels, Sing It! Spirit of Envy! puts two joyfully waggling fingers up to glib political nonsense-speak.

The [anti] Valentines Anti-Slam

  • Hackney Attic

The Anti-Slam is back! The poetry competition where the poet with the lowest score wins.

Valentine’s Day is traditionally a time for heartfelt sentiment and loving feelings – best expressed through beautiful poetry. The Anti-Slam turns that on its head for an Anti-Valentine’s Day slam!

In a normal poetry slam competition, the highest scoring poet wins. At The Anti-Slam, the worst poet wins! We’ve challenged London’s top poets to be hilariously terrible. Laugh-out-loud embarrassing. Entertainingly cringe worthy. Poetry so bad it transcends quality, becoming genius – all given an Anti-Valentine’s twist.
