The Hip Yak Poetry Shack is a hugely entertaining, hand-made, poetry, comedy cabaret, starring the finest talent from the UK performance and stand-up poetry scene.
On July 11th, the Hip Yak team will be joined by the award-winning author, Edinburgh Fringe star, Channel 4 presenter, stand-up poet, musician and broadcaster Tim Clare. Tim has appeared on BBC 2, Radio 1, 2, 4 and 6, and is one of the UK's leading spoken word names.
Along with an amazing array of stand-up poetry, there will be a mini Yakety Yak Poetry Slam for local poets, music, comedy and a special slam winning slot from local Frome poet Robbie Vane.
We are also delighted to announce a guest appearance from Jo Bell, the prize-winning poet behind National Poetry Day.
“The entire evening really was a cabaret of words and laughter in a very laid back environment – if you’re a fan of introspective poetry, the ‘woe is me type’ then this isn’t for you – but if you like the sound of this fantastic new venture, buy your tickets early, it will sell out and it’s not to be missed.” - Rosie Finnegan, The Somerset Standard
This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED event, with limited seating.
