Last month’s Leicester WORD! was an electrifying poetry-shock live session at the now usual spot in the Y Theatre .. I performed my nearly infamous Pop Star piece .. oh, the requests keep rolling in ..

Steve Tasane of Apples and Snakes Poetry Organisation based in London stopped up for a chat and to perform an eclectic piece of his own ..

There was video .. music .. contests with prizes .. and even little birthday cakes for everyone, to mark the first anniversary of the move to the Y ..

Hosted by one of the most daring and vital women in the East Midlands, Lydia Towsey ..

WORD! takes place on the first Tuesday evening of every month ..

It’s jazzy and soulful and rock
With country in places
You’ll love the garage burning down the house
The rap the beat box and hip hopping rhyme
'cause every Leicester WORD!
Is a guaranteed good time
