Past Event
Literature, Poetry & Spoken Word


Fri 13 Dec 2019

Headliner: Joelle Taylor
Poet in Residence: Katrina Quinn
Music: Phonetic
Hosted by: Rosy Carrick

Apples and Snakes in partnership with Brighton Dome presents a spoken word showcase featuring some of the UK’s top artists alongside local musical and spoken word talent.

Each Trope has a theme. March's event is a celebration of International Women’s Day and we thought we'd combine that with Nature to bring a multi-layered theme this time round. Two big themes for one big night!
