Take One

A night of spoken word in our Library

In true fringe festival style, Take One brings you bite-size chunks of new work from an eclectic mix of poets and spoken word artists. Each night will present different works in progress of between 10 and 40 minutes, chosen from open submissions alongside invited special guests. 

Take One gives artists a safe and supportive scratch environment in which to move work out of the rehearsal room and on to the stage for the first time. This is a milestone in the making of any new show, and audience feedback is integral to development. So come along, chew it over, and tell us what you think!

Take One is presented by Apples and Snakes, a leading organisation for performance poetry.
