Popular spoken word night in Southwark set to expand this weekend


Nowhere Nights, a spoken word and live music event which has been taking place in Tap & Bottle at Flat Iron Square, London Bridge, has become increasingly popular over the last few months and is set to take over a new venue this Saturday (27th April).

Long evenings of live music and spoken word found a permanent home at Flat Iron Square’s Tap & Bottle last October, hosting six nights in six months. However, due to sell-out events, Nowhere Nights will now be relocating to The Siding, Flat Iron Square, with a capacity of up to 100 people. The venue promises those attending a great view of the acts from both the ground floor and from the upstairs bar, which overlooks the stage.

To celebrate the move, Oliver Cable, Nowhere Nights creator and host, has created a special line-up. Musicians are folk singer-songwriter Bity Booker and jazz quartet Vellichor. Spoken word on the night comes from Dean Atta, who has been anthologised by Bad Betty Press, Emma Press, Stripes Publishing, Team Angelica and has appeared on BBC One, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service and Channel 4. Dean was named as one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by the Independent on Sunday. Oliver Cable himself will also perform a set of his poetry. Artist Shahina Jaffer will be responding to the performers through the medium of paint, producing a live painting throughout the evening.
