One of Manchester’s longest running spoken word and new writing events is back at The King’s Arms, Salford on Monday 17th June!

Verbose brings a vibrant mix of spoken word and live literature from a talented bill of open mic acts and two wonderful headliners every month. Expect poetry, prose and everything in between from a real community vibe that gladly welcomes all newcomers.

If you are interested in being part of the open mic, with a four minute slot to read or perform any type of writing, email between 7th & 9th June 2024.

INTRODUCING OUR HEADLINER … just days before he heads to light up the Poetry Stage at Glastonbury 2024!

Culain Wood is a spoken word poet from Salford...

"One of the most exciting poets in the country" (Punk in Drublic), Culain's poetry is full of "integrity, humility and fragility" (Glastonbury Festival).
Culain lists Joe Strummer, David Attenborough and Eric Cantona as his inspirations, but he also writes for his daughters, so they will always know what he stood for, and who he stood up to…
…or something like that.
