The Ramblers Ball Returns!
Fans of prose and poetry alike, rejoice! As requedsted, our tremendously popular The Ramblers Ball poetry event will return to Evolve on Tuesday 2 April.
Building on its successful debut last year, the stage is set once again for the spoken word open-mic event. What’s more, prolific spoken word artist and community activist Midnight Shelley will be headlining the evening, bringing their powerful signature style.
With Mancunian roots and a Nottingham postcode, Midnight Shelley performs across the country and has featured on the bills of festivals including Shambala, Rebellion Punk Festival, Cheltenham Literature Festival, Lime Tree Music Festival, Femstival, and Green Gathering.
Again held at Evolve’s Digbeth café again, in collaboration with local lyricist and previous headliner Casey Bailey, the event will be a celebration of poetry in all its guises, hearing from published performers and amateur enthusiasts. Whether partial to a poem, a fan of flash fiction, or a sucker for a short story, if you're a budding poet, we want to hear from YOU too!
Alongside this food for thought, Evolve will also be serving up a menu of tasty treats. From coffee and cake through to a delicious meal, guests will be able to have their fill of food while they digest their thoughts. Good for both the mind and the body, guests can also rest assured that it is good for the soul, with the proceeds being directly invested back into the social enterprise café.
Tickets are free, but organisers ask attendees to pay-as-they-feel on the night to raise money for Evolve. Sign up for your ticket now!
