“The world is revolting. People are angry. A storm is coming. This is a protest. This is a call to arms.” A line up of brilliant spoken word artists – Francesca Beard, Roger Robinson, Joelle Taylor, Chiedu Oraka, Hannah Silva – appear alongside emerging artists mentored by Zena Edwards, joining forces to “declare their rebel yell”. Presented by Apples and Snakes as part of 35-year celebrations, head this way for all the details and to book.

Inua Ellams’ R.A.P. Party | Canada Water Theatre | 4 Oct
And more from poetic types for you: “20 years ago, one of the greatest albums in hip hop was released. Combining classic rap lyricism and poetry with soul, jazz and funk, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill grew to supersede the hip hop genre in which it was conceived to become one of the greatest albums in the history of music, indeed of all time. This special R.A.P Party gathers the most incredible contemporary poets writing to create and share new verse in response the timeless songs, the journeys, questions and reflections raised by Lauryn Hill.” More here.

Risklab | Camden People’s Theatre | 4-5 Oct
