Posted on 8 Nov 2019

A unique performance poetry event will tonight bring four remarkable spoken-word artists to the heart of Birmingham. 


Returning to the SHOUT Festival for another take-over, Hit The Ode features Jackie Hagan, a working-class, bisexual amputee, poet, standup comedian, playwright and activist, and Leicester poet and performer Jay Hulme, the 2015 winner of Slambassadors. 

They’re joined by former UK Poetry Slam Champion Keith Jarrett - who’s in the process of completing his first novel, exploring the migration of religion from the Caribbean to London - and Dean Atta, who was named one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by the Independent On Sunday.


Hit The Ode takes place tonight (Friday 8 November) at Birmingham Hippodrome.
