Verve Poetry & Spoken Word Festival

The Old Rep Theatre, Station Street, Birmingham, West Midlands, B5 4DY
Verve Poetry & Spoken Word Festival

About

Verve is a four-day festival in the heart of Birmingham city centre, 5 seconds walk from the shiny New Street Station. We've programmed the very best contemporary poetry all in one building. Hear award-winning poets and local legends sharing the same stage. Attend workshops open to all levels. Experience genre-defying performances. Bring the house down at a spoken word and music gig. Brave an open mic.


Meet your favourite poets and discover new ones. It's the friendly, down to earth, cosmopolitan and deliciously bold festival you've heard everyone talking about. Most importantly, we want Verve to be for everyone: whether you've been writing for years or are just starting out; whether you've attended every festival on the circuit or this is your first.
