Spoken word wizards Apples and Snakes’ flagship Midlands event, Hit the Ode, brings the best poets and spoken word artists to the Birmingham Hippodrome Patrick Studio. Join us for an all-queer SHOUT special featuring Ella Otomewo, Joelle Taylor and Indie band The Upper World ft. Jet Sweeney.
Shimmy on down. We have poems powerful enough to resuscitate plateaued careers. Poems to make the sun come back out. Poems to prepare you for a Game of Thrones winter. Poems that’ll give Usain Bolt a run for his money. Good poems. Come and get them!
