Hit the Ode is a unique performance poetry night bringing world-class spoken word artists to the heart of Birmingham. One regional, one national and one international poet perform alongside open micers.

Join us! We have poems. Poems which may require some self-assembly. Poems bright like trumpet solos. Poems which will bloom in a couple of months if you give them plenty of light and water them well. Good poems. Come and get them!

If you would like five minutes to share your own work on stage, contact Aliyah Hasinah to request an open mic slot (a very few will also be made available on the night – first come, first served).
