Family Arts Festival: Spoken Word Family Hour with Raise The Bar
As part of Raise The Bar’s third birthday celebrations and the Bristol Family Arts Festival, join us for this extra special spoken word event for families, with performances by professional poets Sara Hirsch and MiKo Berry and a chance for families to create and share their own works too.
The event is FREE to attend and will take place in our Café Bar between 15:00-16:00. It's most suitable for kids aged 6-11, though the whole family are welcome to attend. Drop in for as long or as little as you like, but please note that spaces for this event will be allocated on a first come first served basis. So grab a drink and settle in!
MiKo Berry is the former Scottish Poetry Slam Champion and European Slam Champion, an energetic performer and one of the most influential UK spoken word poets.
Sara Hirsch is the former UK Slam Champion, and recently published her first children's poetry collection 'Louder Than Words'.
Raise the Baris a live events organisation, YouTube channel, artist development and online media platform providing artists with a high quality platform to perform their work, as well as showcasing some of the best spoken word poets in the world.
