02 February 2020 — 03 November 2020


For 2020 Word Up is back with a program of workshops and six stellar live events at the Royal Oak to continue the conversation we started with Harlesden in 2015.

We present Word Up - Harlesden’s home grown spoken word night, back for as part of the Brent Borough of Culture 2020 programme. Same love, same video quality, same hat to drop your name into - and add the very best of the UK spoken word scene, along with artists with musical elements to close our live shows, happening six times across 2020.

We are back with a bang and as part of this project we will continue to champion emerging talent on our open mic and offer a program of creative workshops at Harlesden Library to offer development opportunities to Brent residents. Our workshops will focus on performance, writing, editing, found poetry and artist self care. They will be led by leading, established artists and writers and take place in Harlesden library.

All our events are FREE, but the workshops will require you to book to secure your free place.
