Hammer and Tongue with 2013 National Poetry Slam champion Stephen Morrison Burke

Any chance to see Lucy Ayrton should be clasped firmly to our collective bosoms, as along with Tina Sederholm, she represents the best of Oxford performance poetry. Stephen Morrison-Burke, is spirited, sincere, skilled in his craft, and at his best, close to spellbinding.

Both of these fine young performers, and a supporting cast of spoken word artists feature in an open mic slam at the Old Fire Station for £7 (£5 concessions) courtesy of Hammer and Tongue.


Arrive from 7.30 to guarantee the best seats - look for the Oxford Arts Group signs on tables.

    This was a brilliant evening. Both the poets were incredible. Bought Lucy's book... Just a pity I had to leave before the last part. I shall be back for more in December!

    Have been on the Hammer and Tongue website but struggling to find a link to tickets. Tried the Old Fire Station too... tickets link not functioning... Can anyone help?

    November 10, 2013

    • Neil

      According to the Facebook page, it's tickets on the door only! (But I've never had any trouble getting in that way before) :)
