Words Per Minute

Words Per Minute

Sun 11 Dec 2011 | 4pm-6pm | £5

Spoken word, live music, film and performance on a Sunday afternoon.

Words Per Minute has been showcasing the best of Glasgow’s grassroots talent for a year, whether that’s new writing, beatboxing, megaphone poetry, live blues or stand-up comedy: everyone gets ten minutes to impress and everything is rounded off with a DJ set from Miaoux Miaoux.

Previous acts have included novelists Ewan Morrison, Sophie Cooke, Rodge Glass, Suhayl Saadi, Duncan McLean, Doug Johnstone and Alan Bissett, musicians Adam Stafford, Swimmer One, Zorras, Eilidh MacAskill and DMC contender Bigg Taj, and performance from Gary McNair, Martin O’Connor and Kieran Hurley.

Keep an eye out for this month’s line-up and check out the photos from previous Words Per Minute events on Flickr.
