Big Talk

A carnival of spoken word.


Steve Tasane

Steve is a performance poet who has featured at Glastonbury Festival, the 100 Club, Latitude and was writer-in-residence at Battersea Dogs Home. He rap-funks for everyone from primary schools to May Day anarchists, was an Associate Artist for Lit Up and has now turned his hand to writing teen horror with his fist novel  Blood Donors gaining rave reviews.

***** “The story succeeds in making the skin crawl and the flesh creep whilst also having more serious undertones around the nature of social and class prejudice.”

Lucy Lepchani

Lucy rhymes and rants, chants and charms with poems that prod at injustices and taboos or that stroke life’s underbelly with tenderness, or passion, or humour. She is unafraid to champion a cause or to point out the ridiculous contradictions of 21st Century Britain, in particular with regard to how women are portrayed or expected to behave.

Open mic
