Nottingham spoken word

It’s been yonks. The city’s poets are raring for a mic.

Join us for the launch of Nottingham poetry event series. SPRAYBOX. A collaboration between GOBS Collective, Phlexx Records and Nottingham C.A.N.

Every month we’re bringing unheard spoken-word talent to The Chapel, upstairs at The Angel Microbrewery. Expect rambunctious metaphors, stories from the chest, and a big-beat surrealism game. Hosted by previous LeftLion Editor and GOBS Founder Bridie Squires, with Nottingham C.A.N and Phlexx Director Trekkah on the decks. Each evening will see a roster of GOBS and C.A.N artists who’ve been building poetry throughout lockdown and are ready to spray their stuff.

Whose voice?

Hugh Dichmont (GOBS Collective)
Hugh is a writer whose creative outputs span film, poetry and award-winning stage plays. Recent projects include “funny and surreal” dark comedy podcast ‘The Future History of the British Isles’ (★★★★★ iTunes). In a former life he was part of rambunctious art collective ‘Tether’, making collaborative installations and performance events, including a Disco Toilet, which he still misses a bit, but he rents a flat, so that's not really feasible, is it?

Plentiful Poet (Nottingham C.A.N)
Plentiful Poet is a spoken word artist and trained mental health worker with a Foundation Degree in Theatre Arts & Performance, and is the Director of Truth Mental Health, a spoken word platform that also provides mentoring. With UK-wide performances, she's gaining notoriety as an emerging voice for trauma and mental health, with her experience of racism, mental illness and disability informing both her practice on stage, and in Truth's community work.

Jay Sandhu (GOBS Collective)
Jay Sandhu is a comedian, writer and poet. Punchy, informative and witty, his poetry and comedy focuses on race and culture. He has had multiple BBC commissioned pieces. Jay is also part of the GOBS spoken word collective and performed at The Bradford and Edinburgh Fringe.

Samuel Gosrani (Nottingham C.A.N)
