Off The Chest is an inclusive, explosive spoken word and poetry night, celebrating original voices and poetry that makes a statement. Don’t miss their long-awaited return to Canada Water Theatre, after their smash hit night back in February.


As well as feature sets from two highly-acclaimed poets, their renowned open mic segment offers the opportunity to poets of all backgrounds and ages, from first-timers to seasoned pros, to take to the stage. You will be able to sign up for the open mic on the night, with 10 spots up for grabs. Names will be pulled out of a hat.


Hosted by poets Ella Dorman-Gajic and Iftikhar Latif, Off The Chest champions community within the poetry world. They have produced multiple nights to sell-out audiences.
