Preview: Great Northern Slam at Newcastle Northern Stage

Great Northern Slam
Hosted by Jeff Price
Special Guest Rowan McCabe
Newcastle Northern Stage
Thursday 31st March 2016

The Great Northern Slam is back. Their last show played to a full house and made history to be the first Slam ever to go digital. Every member of the audience got a voting gizmo that registered their vote in our electronic voting system. It was fun and it was fast with poets being knocked out like drunks on a Saturday night in the Bigg Market.

It's performance poetry meets X-Factor. Sixteen of the best slam poets in the North have 3 minutes each to wow the audience with words and delivery and then you the audience vote and in each round we eliminate poets until only two are left to battle it out for the prize, pride and the glory of becoming Great Northern Slam Champion.

In addition, they have invited the winner of the November Slam back to do a guest spot. Rowan McCabe has appeared around the country at places like the Edinburgh Fringe and the Bristol Poetry Festival; in the past he’s supported John Hegley, Tim Turnbull and Dizraeli. In 2014 he wrote and toured his one man show, North East Rising (Read the NETG review of North East Rising LINK).
