EVERYBODY NOW!

EVERYBODY NOW!

Listen Up! A wild bunch of free-wheeling wordsmiths of wisdom are hitting the stage for a night of slam poetry with a difference.

Hosted by award-winning comedian Jenny Wynter, Gran Slam Live stars a razor-sharp collective of poets between 60- and 99-years young, alongside special literary and music guests.

An entertaining night of poetic storytelling, intimate reflections and hilarious insights into life, ageing, freedom, riding skateboards, setting sail into a misty sea of metaphors.

Gran Slam is a project by Everybody NOW!  Proudly supported by founding partners Feros Care.

“WORDSMITHS OF WISDOM AND POETIC SENIORS WHO ARE READY TO STEP UP TO THE SOAPBOX AND SLAM –  SLAM POETRY THAT IT.”
