Verse Matters is a feminist bi-monthly spoken word event which usually takes place on the 1st Thursday of the month. Each event has a mix of experienced and new performers and we are proud to prioritise crafting a diverse line up. We give space to narratives that are seldom heard elsewhere.
Verse Matters was founded in July 2015 by Rachel Bower and is a supportive space for poetry, spoken word, storytelling, music and comedy, showcasing the work of talented people in a friendly, safe environment.
