Stand Up & Slam is going to the Landmark Arts Centre to be part of 'Landmark Stories – comedy, poetry and storytelling
2–5 March 2017'. A special four day festival that’s all about stories – all you need is your imagination! Festival curated by Alison Hill and supported by The Gosling Foundation.

Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let's find out.

Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results! Our resident team captains are joined by the most exciting comedy and poetry acts from around the UK. We’re mashing up the two art forms in an epic battle of spoken word. Who wins? You decide...
