Hit the Ode

Hit the Ode brings the most exciting poets from the region, the country and the world straight to the heart of Birmingham.

Hit the Ode brings the most exciting poets from the region, the country and the world to the heart of Birmingham. Join us! We have poems. Poems written on the backs of lottery tickets and on the margins of holy books; poems which yell through covered mouths and whisper through megaphones; poems which send you emails every day and poems which are not available to take your call right now. Good poems. Come and get them.


From Birmingham, shortMAN: shortMAN merges rhythm and rhyme in an eloquent examination of black history, justice, equality, and social issues.

From Manchester, Mike Garry: Mike’s heroes are the underdogs and the outsiders. He has been described by the Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder as ‘the best street poet ever.’

From Botswana, Andreattah Chuma: a member of the renowned Exodus Live Poetry collective, Drea has enchanted audiences from Gaborone to Glastonbury – but it will be her first performance in Brum!

A very few open mic slots will be available on the door (the pre-bookable slots have all been claimed). For more info, contact bohdan@applesandsnakes.org.
