Scratch Club workshop

Bi-Monthly. Next session 15th Nov

@ The Key Theatre Embankment Road, Peterborough,  PE1 1EF

FREE but booking essential

Scratch Club is a space where performance poets at any stage of their career can share work in progress and get constructive, supportive feedback on their performance from their fellow poets.

Apples and Snakes started running Scratch Clubs in 2010, in Newcastle, as a way of responding to local poets’ need for both skills development and community-building.

Clare Currie approached Jumped Up’s Creative Producer, Kate Hall, and suggested they ran a Peterborough Scratch Club together.

The next session is on 15th November and is part of SYNTAX, Peterborough Festival of Spoken word. This session will be led by Hannah Davis:

Hannah is a writer theatre-maker and spoken word poet. She is Associate Artist at Say Owt, York's leading spoken word night and is a multi-slam winning poet (Great Northern Slam, Bristol Poetry Festival Slam, Say Owt Anti-Slam, Axis Anti-slam, BBC Edfringe Slam finalist 2017, Word War Four Champion, Hammer and Tongue National Finals). Hannah has performed at leading spoken word nights all over the country (Evidently, Tongue Fu, Sonnet Youth, Find the Right Words, Rap Party). She lives in York with her teenage son. 


Hannah is an experienced workshop facilitator and brings an array of performance skills to the session. She is really looking forward to running the Scratch Club and helping you to access an embodied ease and powerful vocal delivery on stage. Bring a poem you'd like to play with, memorised if at all possible.
