16 go in… only one comes out. It sounds like the opening to an epic gladiatorial fight but it’s actually much more exciting than that: it’s only the return of SLAMalgamate!!! to the Cumberland Arms on Thursday 22nd January. The event, brought to you by the joined literary forces of JibbaJabba, Apples and Snakes and The Stanza, pits spoken word slammers against each other in a battle to become the north east’s best spoken word slam artist.

16 spoken word artists are performing across four intense rounds, but only one person can emerge victorious. The winner will receive a paid slot at Birmingham’s Hit the Ode next month with travel and accommodation all provided. For the first time ever, the runner up will receive a paid gust slot at the Radikal Words Great Northern Slam at Northern Stage in April.

If you’ve never seen a slam night before then strap yourself in for one of the most intense, engaging and riveting nights on the literary calendar.

SLAMalgamate!!! is at The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle on Thursday 22nd January.
