Word Up

// Word Up is currently *paused* due to Charlie and Laura having a baby! We'll be back // Spoken word is exploding, and there's no barrier to entry. We’re building a space for creatives to share their thoughts through poems / raps / lyrics. Anyone is welcome, virgins or veterans. Together we'll create a group with open ears and free-flowing words. Expect outspoken, lively words from both newcomers and some established artists. Open mic slots are open to registration on the night from 7:30pm, so get down early. The spoken word will kick off at 8pm. Open mic will be "1 piece" slots (5 minutes max). Price: Free Please share!

We are excited to announce the revival of Word Up!
We have been awarded funding as part of the #brent2020 culture fund to put on 6 stellar live events at the Royal Oak Harlesden and continue the conversation we started with Harlesden in 2015.

We are back with a new but older team; Charlie de Courcy Word Up founder, Hannah Gordon whose been at the helm of the writing group words down; which will continue to run weekly (Tuesdays, 7.30, Rubio: open to anyone with a desire to write), and the incredible Desree, who has always been championed by Word Up since she started performing there in 2015.

Together we present the Word Up we all grew up with, same love, same video quality, same hat to drop your name into - and add the very best of the UK spoken word scene, along with artists with musical elements to close our live shows, happening 6 times across 2020.

For 2020, we are back with a bang and as part of this project we will continue to champion emerging talent on our open mic and offer a program of creative workshops at Harlesden Library to offer development opportunities to Brent residents.
