Headliner: Samuel King

Samuel King is a multifaceted creative from North London who specialises in spoken word and poetry. Known for his engaging stage performance. Samuel brings an original, creative and versatile approach to his work.
With his witty, thought-provoking writing style, Samuel aims to break the stigma related to traditional page poetry, by infusing his personality and creative prowess to ensure his work is educational as well as entertaining.
Samuel has performed all over the UK sharing his diverse, yet humorous perspective on life and society.
If you haven’t seen Samuel King on stage before, it’s something you should have on your list of things to do whilst he is in a city near you.

Mental Health Support

We appreciate that competition of any kind, or the discussion of potentially sensitive topics at events, may trigger anxiety or other pre-existing mental health concerns. As a result of this, following each slam, we are offering participants an optional, free 45 minute online aftercare session with our resident BACP-accredited psychotherapist Anna Sinski. Anna will also be available at each slam should participants require any care.
