In celebration of Dickens' 200th birthday, and in conjunction with World Book Day, Jam Bones and Chapter are pleased to present:
The World's First (and Possibly Last) 19th Century-Inspired Lit-Slam!
at Chapter, Saturday 3rd March, from 8pm
Poetry and prose in its many forms are welcome at this event, in which slammers will compete, in genteel 19th century fashion, for some suitably arcane prizes (TBA).
Over 3 rounds, slammers will have up to 3 minutes to impress our randomly-picked-from-the-
audience judges - pieces performed in the first round must have some kind of Dickensian/Victorian link/theme, the final 2 rounds are anything-goes.
NOTE: if you have a Dickensian/Victorian-themed piece, but don't want to slam, there will now be an OPEN MIC section as well :-)
ALSO FEATURING SPECIAL GUEST
***Miss Lilly Laudanum!***
The ex-London Dungeon burlesque babe who will be adding her bust and bustle skirt to the event. Just what is Victoria's secret?? You'll have to come along to find out!! http://www.lillylaudanum.com/
Tickets are £4 on the door, £2 for slammers/open mic.
PLEASE EMAIL ME (Mab Jones) IF YOU WISH TO TAKE PART AS PLACES ARE LIMITED!
