Evidently – Spoken Word at the Eagle

Please note this is an 18+ event

Join us for another night of “clever, witty and thought-provoking entertainment” at Evidently!

“The clues are all there: hard work behind the scenes, a unique performance space, an up-for-it crowd, friendly hosting, top tech, a high standard of open mic and ace guests. Evidently a great poetry night!” – Tony Walsh – AKA Longfella.

“Evidently is a rip roaring, verse slinging, cheer rousing, heart filling, feet stamping riot of rhythm and rhymes. Hosted with humour, passion and spark. Top talent and true comradery among word weavers and watchers. Beautiful.” – Dominic Berry.

Boasting the fabulous talents of J.B. Barrington and Jack Smurf and hosted by Salford’s own Kieren King.

JB Barrington was shortlisted for the Best Spoken word award at the Greater Manchester Fringe his work as been reviewed as a ‘roller coaster of emotions’ Johnny Vegas said of his poetry “Lovely stuff, touches heart strings and the odd raw nerve”. JB has recently been supporting Sleaford Mods on their UK tour and his one man show has sold out in Salford, Hull, Liverpool, Leeds and Edinburgh.

Ten open mic spots are available (one poem – two minutes per poet) in the event that more than ten people wish to sign up, priority will be given to first time performers. We are filming each night so everyone who performs will get a shiny new Youtube video if they want one.

£3 on the door.

Forget what you learned at school, this is poetry as entertainment.

“Evidently, for my money, is without doubt one of the best spoken-word nights in the country. Brimming with Manchester’s customary sense of rebellion, artistry and swaggering streetwise cool, it never fails to attract a large and loyal audience usually hungry for something new and host Kieren King always delivers.

Acting as both effortless compere and staggeringly good wordsmith he holds together a brilliant monthly event, which has so far attracted some the UKs best and most outspoken talent from the performance poetry scene.

This is no Dead Poets’ Society – just dead good poetry. Do yourself a favour.”
