Newtown Spoken Word is Back!

*Newtown Spoken Word is Back!*

Come and join us for the latest instalment of Wellington's busiest and best open mic night, on leap day Friday 29 February.

Since mid 2005 the renowned Word Collective have been teaming up with the Newtown Community and Cultural Centre and the Newtown Festival to deliver these rambunctious and rowdy seasonal Spoken Word nights. More than poetry, more than storytelling NSW is your chance to rant, rave, dance and tear up the stage. Or just take the opportunity to sit back end enjoy the strange and wonderful art being made in your own backyard.

Come Newtown, Come Wellington, Come one, Come all
