Poejazzi @ The Thames Festival, 9th September Sunday FREE

Inbetween prayers for Mr Sun to hang around but a few more weekends more, we will be running only our third festival outing ever:  Thames Festival, sunday the 9th at 4pm ! (Wooo! Yaaaaay! Confetti!)

Come see us on the bandstand stage, at the Bernie Spain Gardens, just by the OXO Tower (as part of Where the Wild Words Are; entry is FREE); we will have a fine line-up indeedy:


The Afro-Blonde Wonder is our headline act. Having gained accolades from distinguished folk such as Tom Robinson (BBC), Alex James AND toured with Ed Sheeran, Fiona’s brand of cheeky folk-meets-cabaret-meets-pop lyrics and joyously sunny vocals are bound for great things.


Our host of the eve is a mainstay in the spoken word scene; you would know this if you’ve ever been to apples and snake’s Jawdance or pretty much 90% of spoken word events in London. Down to earth, energetic and humorous, Yomi aka GREEdS does spoken word like anecdotes from a friend. One of London’s finest.

James Massiah:

How best to describe him? one part trench-coat, one part talent (obvs), one part grin, and a dash of well crafted, amazing metaphors. One of the highlights of our december 2011 gig, James Massiah is like nothing out there.


Festival favorite Theo Bard performs his first Poejazzi in four years. An amazing folk singer and a wicked storyteller; we cried during his rendition of middle class boy…


Founder of only TWO of the best Spoken word nights in London (Chill Pill and Come Rhyme With Me), how Deanna finds time to perform anywhere else is a testament to her organisational skills. Since the last time we booked Deanna we’ve been aching to get her back on our stage. You hear Deanna speak and you hear the care she places in her words and the beauty in her delivery.

Not too bad, huh? 4pm Sunday 9th. FREE so you have nish excuse.
