Poetry, passion, and the music choice of champions.

Hammer and Tongue is Brighton's biggest monthly performance poetry and open slam event, hosted by the booming enthusiasm of Michael James Parker at the Komedia.

Join us on the radio show where the current slam champion will share some of their poetry, perspectives on the world and the music that inspires them, in conversation with Michael and the champions of the art who make this such an exciting city for spoken word.

Hear the programme on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 2pm.
