Event Details

Come and join us for a night filled with stories and laughter. It is a night you surely won’t forget.

Trimdon Station Community Centre presents it’s very first spoken word night BORN TO TALK! The night features a great line up of some of the best spoken word artists in the UK.

Our headline act Kate Fox
An accomplished stand-up poet, writer and performer Kate uses comedy to talk about class, gender and Northerness. She is one of the UK’s best known spoken word artists and regularly appears on Radio 4. She has supported John Cooper Clarke and is a headline act in her own right.

Scott Tyrrell
A Newcastle-based stand up poet, Scott has been writing and performing poetry and comedy since the turn of the century. An award-winning comedian as well as a multi-slam-winning poet, he has performed his work around the UK and Europe and at many festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe and Glastonbury.

Seymour Mace
Like a surreal Vic and Bob bomb colliding with a kids’ TV show, Geordie nonsense-peddler Seymour Mace leaves his crowd uplifted and entertained. A veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe festival of over twenty years and finalist of the Edinburgh Comedy Award, Seymour Mace is a surreal oddball blessed with a wonderfully off-kilter worldview who is bound to make you laugh
