Young Identity are Manchester’s finest young spoken word performers, working in partnership with Contact for the last 10 years. Join us for a boisterous night of poetry and music.

One Mic Stand is centred around a Poetry Slam, in which 10 poets are given only 3 minutes each to wow the audience with their lyrical mastery and charismatic delivery to battle it out to gain the top spot and win the grand prize of £50!

A hotbed of upcoming talent, this edition features Tukaiisloveletter, an extraordinary poet, singer, songwriter and producer who took part in BBC 1Xtra Words First; and poet/playwright Joelle Taylor, one of the BBC Hull 17 poets and SLAMbassadors founder.

This is a seated show. Directed by Young Identity and Wordsmith.

10+. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
