Out-Spoken: February

See stars at February’s poetry and live music gathering, featuring a headline set by poet laureate Simon Armitage and more guests to be confirmed.

Each month, London's premier evening of poetry and live music Out-Spoken brings you the best in UK poetry alongside a line-up of world-class musicians.

Out-Spoken is hosted by Joelle Taylor, with Sam 'Junior' Bromfield spinning the best in reggae, soul and R&B throughout the evening.

Simon Armitage, born in West Yorkshire, is the recipient of numerous prizes and awards and was named poet laureate in 2019.

His collections of poetry include Seeing Stars, The Unaccompanied and, most recently, Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic.
