Tales and truths in our living room. A series of Front Room Poetry events in various locations around Bradford.

From skate parks to the estate, this is real poetry on the streets of BFD with some of the most exciting spoken word artists, wordsmiths, storytellers and rappers of our time. If you have something to say, but not sure how to say it- this event is for you.

Imagine vintage sofas, electric firesides, Persian rugs and freestanding lamps. An outdoor sitting room with cuppas, pot dogs and some of the best poets and lyricists from around the UK sharing words and sitting comfy with the bestest Bradford backdrops.

Community champions will co-host spoken word workshops alongside headline poets in their own community settings, and later on we will hear workshop participants and other local poets on the open mic ahead of the headline act. We encourage family, friends and the community to come down and listen, while tempting intrigued residents to see what’s going down in their community living room.
