Bang Said The Gun

Making poetry cool again

26 March 2018 | Visit website | Book tickets

Voted the Best Poetry Night in the UK by the Times, Poetry pioneers Bang Said The Gun are taking their trademark raucous stand-up poetry at Soho Theatre . Started as an antidote to dreary poetry and even drearier poetry nights, co-founders Dan Cockrill and Martin Galton have “dragged poetry kicking and screaming into the 21st century”
. A rollercoaster of emotions, it’s loud, raucous, political, trivial, serious and very funny. Normal rules do not apply here. The fast-moving and highly-energised night showcases a rich mix of new talent and some of the most established names in poetry.

Bang Said The Gun is at Soho Theatre 26 March and 30 April. Tickets £16.50
