Participant Spotlight: Apples and Snakes

Apples and SnakesApples and Snakes is England’s leading organisation for spoken word, with a national reputation for producing exciting, engaging and transformative work in performance and participation.

Apples and Snakes was set up in 1982 by a group of poets in order to establish more performance poetry events. Over the last three decades, Apples and Snakes has been the development ground for many high profile poets and artists, inspired countless young people and taken performance poetry to new places. Since 2002, Apples and Snakes has made the transition to a national organisation and now has Area Programme Co-ordinators in the Midlands, North, South East and East and South West, as well as our creative team in London.

Storytelling Evening (with Jan Blake)

Join one of the leading storytellers, specialising in stories from Africa, the Caribbean and Arabia. 

Storytelling takes us on a journey of the imagination, encouraging us to engage the senses and savour the moment. Come and join Jan Blake to experience worlds of love, hate, trickery and fate. You will be joining gods, animals and human beings on their journeys through their lives and hear how they have become immortal through the tales of people.
