Out-Spoken

We’re excited to partner with Out-Spoken, one of London’s premier live poetry and music nights and a champion for diversity of voice in writing and performance.

In a year-long residency beginning in May, we are working with Out-Spoken to bring monthly events and masterclasses to Southbank Centre.
