     SomerSlam 2018







Performance Event

  Venue: Goodlands Gardens Green
Taunton, Somerset
Saturday 16th June


Somerset Slam Finals! 
The finest wordsmiths from across the region will go head-to-head in this 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.
Please remember this is a mid-day show for a family audience.

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