Evenings of Spoken Word in Stapleford

I organise and host spoken word events in Stapleford with friend and colleague Dave Wood

The venue is currently 'Two For Tea', buy a drink for entrance. Two guests artists perform for 20 minutes, with the remainder of the evening consisting of open spots. Performance is in-the-round.

Please get in touch if you'd like to do an open spot or receive more information about evenings

A generous review of a particular evening by Gary Carr


Spoken Worlds, Burton

Richard Young is a Performance Poet, and a very good one at that. Strong material is supported by even stronger delivery, the master of the pause, a sideways glance, or a 'stage aside'.

Poetry Alight, Lichfield

Nottingham Poet Richard Young delivered one of his delightful funny poems from memory. Strong material and a strong performance, I can listen and watch Richard at anytime.
