SomerSlam 2018!


Start time: Saturday 11:30am (16 June)
End time: Saturday 2:00pm (16 June)


Somerset Slam Finals!
The finest wordsmiths from across the region will go head-to-head in our second ever Slam Poetry Competition. The Somerfest Audience will decide only 1 winner!

Reigning champion Melanie Branton will Perform the headline slot with support from a whole host of amazing spoken word artists.

So come along and see for yourself what all the hype is about...or maybe you think you have what it takes to enter??????????????

All competing wordsmiths will be given three minutes to recite a poem, tell a story, or perform any other spoken word discipline. Whether they are laughing, crying or both at once – the Somerfest audience will decide who is the winner. You have three minutes each so keep it snappier than a brittle crocodile...(sorry)...and remember this is a mid-day show for a family audience.

Our 2018 Somerset Slam Champion will win the chance to headline next year's slam and join the SomerSlam family forever! You will also win an engraved trophy and a (deliberately non-committal) AMAZING PRIZE! Lets get ready to ramble!

Slam will begin at 11.30 at the Goodlands Gardens Green at Somerfest on Saturday 16th June 2018. To sign up or for more information please contact coordinator Jackie Clementines - Sign-ups will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Note you do not need to be from Somerset to compete. We are not that xenophobic! You just have to be in Somerset on the day with a selection of mind-blowing words!
