Bring Your Own Bars Poetry is back for our fifth event! Join us again at Boxpark Wembley for a night of spoken word with our barons of bars, headliners Big Scoop and Woodzy!!! This is an 18+ event funded in part by Brent 2020 London Borough of Culture.

Woodzy is a force in the spoken word scene, having left audiences breathless for years now.
