The Hip Yak Poetry Shack

Hip Yak Spoken Word
28 February 2019 Salisbury Arts Centre


Thursday 28 February at 8pm

A hugely entertaining, hand-made, poetry, comedy cabaret, starring the finest talent from the UK performance poetry and stand-up poetry scene.

Described by The West End Centre in Aldershot as ‘as thrilling and invigorating as rock ‘n’ roll’, The Hip Yak Poetry Shack stars three of the most exciting voices from the South West, Chris Redmond (host of London’s premier poetry night Tongue-Fu), Jonny Fluffypunk (sustainable nihilist and comedy and poetry circuit legend) and Liv Torc (former Bard of Exeter, producer of Hip Yak Poetry Stage at WOMAD and winner of Radio 4 SW slam).

“The Hip Yak Poetry Shack is a revelation! Not only a high calibre of poet but high on the entertainment scale too, not to mention immersive for the audience and involving for regional poets. All in all a total winner for the South West and indeed the National spoken word scene.” Gina Sherman, Apples and Snakes

Fest West should prepare itself to be totally flabbergasted and very pleasantly entertained by some of the finest, funniest, deeply moving and profoundly right-on (but not in an annoying way) spoken word entertainment.

This event will include a quick fire Hip Yak slam and anyone wishing to enter should contact livtorc@yahoo.com
