Valentine’s Day is traditionally a time for heartfelt sentiment and loving feelings – best expressed through beautiful poetry. The Anti-Slam turns that on its head for an Anti-Valentine’s Day slam!

In a normal poetry slam competition, the highest scoring poet wins. At The Anti-Slam, the worst poet wins! We’ve challenged London’s top poets to be hilariously terrible. Laugh-out-loud embarrassing. Entertainingly cringe worthy. Poetry so bad it transcends quality, becoming genius – all given an Anti-Valentine’s twist.

The worst poet wins in The Anti-Slam Anti-Valentine’s Day show. Hosted by Paula Varjack and Dan Simpson, and featuring some of London’s very best poets lowering the bar with riotously abysmal love poems. (Don’t) bring a date!

Time Out London’s Valentine’s pick and sell-out show four years running!
