Spork! was created by local artist Chris White in 2018 to bring accessible & fun spoken-word to the region. We're community led, are constantly trying new ideas and love working with partners accross the city.

In the past 3 years, we've put on almost 40 events, including slams, haiku workshops and online gigs. We've worked with a range of partners from Newcourt Community Centre to Mothers Who Make, and have programmed drag queens, brass bands and rappers, as well as some of the best spoken-word artists in the UK and beyond, including Buddy Wakefield, Vanessa Kissule and John Hegley.
