Newcastle’s tip-top wordy night Born Lippy comes to Cobalt Studios on Wednesday 7th November, with a mix of hip-hop, poetry, spoken word and more. This month welcomes a really stellar line-up all made possible thanks to support from leading spoken word organisation Apples and Snakes.

With award-winning poet Mark Grist bringing a true gift with words, Manchester-based writer and performance artist Keisha Thompson bringing an original and thought-provoking voice, there’s stories and silliness from comedian Si Buglass and up-and-coming rapper Reali-T showcasing some punchy wordplay. Alongside that, Born Lippy Slam winner Megan McKie-Smith brings some jaw droppingly good stream of consciousness poetry too.

Born Lippy is a pretty special night, that celebrates the smart and cerebral alongside the honest and passionate, and is one of those evenings that gets under your skin in all the best ways.
