We're back on Monday the 18th of May with the third incarnation of what is shaping up to become Leeds' loudest spoken word & poetry night, Verbal Remedies!
Open mic is sign-up-on-the-night, lineup for May's guest acts will be released in the coming weeks. Expect poets of all varieties from across the country as we continue our mission to connect folk of the spoken word.
