We’re thrilled to bring you four days of world-class poetry and spoken word talent with a literature line up you’ve never seen before.
Verve features established as well as up and coming poets, internationally acclaimed talent and undiscovered local artists, writing workshops, spoken word masterclasses, poetry slams, and lively children’s poetry and storytelling events – all under one roof. We promise that these readings, workshops, open mics and one of a kind performances will delight, surprise, shock, move and inspire you.
All events take place across three floors of Waterstones’ beautifully refurbished Birmingham store, right in the city centre.
Concession tickets are available to students, over 65s, long-term unemployed and the disabled. Festival Passes allow you entry into all readings and events, except for workshops. Please book workshops and masterclasses separately!
