  • WOMAD festival Charlton Park, Malmesbury SN16 9DG (map)

World of Music, Arts and Dance - 25-28 July 2019 will be showcasing Penny Pepper

The Hip Yak Poetry Stage at WOMAD

The ramshackle, interactive, comedy-poetry cabaret The Hip Yak Poetry Shack has been located WOMAD World of Words for 6 years, with laughter lines and internal rhymes; pockets full of stories and eyes fierce with tears. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular and celebrated festival spoken word stages in the UK, among poets and audiences alike.

In 2019 we will be back for our 7th year at WOMAD, kicking at the graffiti on the walls that divide us, bringing you the best spoken word, rap, hip hop, page poetry, stage and slam because it’s ALL POETRY and it all has something incredible to say about our world.

So come join us next Summer under the trees by the little purple tent, maybe even with a cup of tea or a paper cup full of tepid beer… for some of the finest, funniest, deeply moving and profoundly right-on (but not in an annoying way) spoken word entertainment you will hear this Summer – and possibly your whole lives. Prepare to be totally flabbergasted and very pleasantly entertained.
