Book Slam returns to The Tabernacle, Notting Hill on May 31st, its rightful home and a fitting venue. The event is in it’s eighth year and fuses fiction with spoken word, live music, comedians and poets.

James Sallis, author of the novel Drive and the sequel, Driven, will be one of the main fixtures at the upcoming event. However, the best thing about this event is that not only does it celebrate award winning authors, but it also showcases new talent too.

With comedian Tony Law providing laughs on the night, there will also be live music from a very special guest – however the organisers are keeping schtum about the specifics, so you’ll have to head down to the event to find out who! [Previous guests include Plan B and Grammy winning Adele, before she racked up the countless accolades]

Sealing the deal, the DJ will be playing ’90s music and there’s also some scrumptious food available.

Self-named ‘London’s best literary nightclub‘ and described by Channel 4 as the ‘literary cabaret for readers‘, it’s a fun event for an alternative night out. The January event, a tribute to the late Gil Scott-Heron, sold out in little over 90 seconds. Has that piqued your interest? Check out the details below for more information on how to book.
