Spoken Word London is a community grown from a bi-monthly open mic night at the legendary VFD nightclub. It was founded in July 2013 by Patrick Cash. Since then we have hosted more than 150 events and given a platform to almost 3000 artists.
Hannah Gordon came on board as host in 2016, and she and Patrick now run the night together.
Every year, we celebrate our anniversary with a special anti-hate themed event. To celebrate our fifth anniversary, we put together an anthology and launched it at a two day, Anti-Hate Festival, thanks to support from Arts Council England.
