The Dancehouse presents

Bang Said the Gun, Manchester

London's Legendary spoken word night gives birth to a Manchester sibling.

Think you know what a poetry night is? Think again. It's mudwrestling with words, it's poetry not ponce, it's not porn, but it's still pretty good. It's Spoken Word's Number One Son: It's Bang Said the Gun!! Poetry for people who don't like poetry, but don't worry, if you do like poetry, you'll like it too.

Hosted by Dave Viney (aka A Poet Called Dave) "Dave Viney is a very funny man and ten times more talented than he is funny." - Mike Garry and Thick Richard "Stu-f*cking-pendous!" - John Cooper Clarke.

Bringing you the best spoken word artists every month and the Raw Meat Stew Open Mic – your chance to win the coveted Golden Gun Award and for the opening night only A CHILLED BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE.

Our guests for April are Luke Wright "One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation." - Johann Hari, The Independent and Ian McMillan (Host of BBC Radio's The Verb) "world-class – one of today's greatest poetry performers" - Carol Ann Duffy.
