Inspired Word: Scroobius Pip, PolarBear
The UK's burgeoning spoken word scene delivers social commentary through rhythmic prose and verse and the Royal Albert Hall brings two of the genre's leading lights to the Elgar Room this November.
Scroobius Pip's everyman polemics tap into cultural unease and political disaffection with verve and wit, while Polarbear performs stories drawn from a life raised on hip-hop and Arthur Scargill.
This event takes place at Royal Albert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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.

Funny and compelling, Polarbear is a 21st century wordsmith with his roots in the rhythms of hip hop and his feet firmly on the ground. A sharp line in storytelling and poems. His work has featured on BBC Radio 1, 3, 4 and 6, and he has performed around the world from Kuala Lumpur to California. He leads writing and performance projects nationally and internationally and can usually be found in the kitchen at house parties.
