Spoken Word Tour: Scroobius Pip, Kate Tempest, Brian Gittins
Best known as one half of unlikely chart bothering duo dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Scroobius Pip is a leading light and unmistakable face of the UK's spoken word scene. Having jacked in the role of punk-bass-player for a marginally more stable career in poetry, Scroobius Pip has been proffering his everyman polemics since the mid-2000s.
Performing on street corners or spoken word stages, for queueing gig goers or reverential Jazz audiences, Pip became synonymous with a burgeoning post-millennial scene, bringing an unfailing wit and disarming stage persona to the uncomfortable truths of the day.
'Intelligent rhymes, profanity, political awareness and humour' (BBC Music).

Kate Tempest is a published playwright, poet and recording artist. Her playwriting credits include Wasted (Paines Plough) Brand New Ancients (BAC) and Glasshouse (Cardboard Citizens). She has written poetry for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Barnado’s, Channel 4 and the BBC. She has worked with Amnesty International to create a schools pack helping secondary school children write their own protest songs.
Kate is two times slam winner at the prestigious Nu-Yorican poetry cafe in New York and she has played all the major UK and European music festivals either solo or with her band Sound Of Rum. Her poetry book/CD/DVD package Everything Speaks In Its Own Way was published on her own imprint Zingaro in 2012.
