In support are two prime movers of the current hip-hop / poetry crossover: Ben Mellor is an environmentally-aware wordsmith from Manchester, fast becoming a respected name in hip-hop theatre, whilst MC Angel is a young spitter who honed her art in the UK'S first all-female MC battle, and courts acclaim and controversy wherever she goes. Check them out on Youtube.
Finally we introduce Michael Frearson, a poet with a rapper's poise, full of in-your-face anecdotes of lost love and, ahem, cheese. And the sizzling Saran Green - poetry's Ms charisma herself - will be our host for the evening.
Brought to you by top poetry promoters Apples & Snakes: it's all spoken word to us.
