WonderZoo Arts Collective is the Plymouth-based home to BlackBooks and The Word, monthly spoken word events held at the China House on Sutton Harbour. It regularly sells out, attracting a large gathering of amiable people representing a diverse range of talent, literary flair, creative nous and lunacy. Over the last three years WonderZoo, BlackBooks and The Word have taken their unique brand of live spoken word events to locations including gardens, art galleries, pubs, basements and festivals.
BlackBooks and The Word have been part of Plymouth International Book Festival, Plymouth Gay Pride Festival, Plymouth History Festival, Union Street Party Plymouth, Plymouth Art Weekender, PlymLit Festival, Twin Sounds -Brest-Plymouth and the Plymouth Festival of Words.
They will be hosting an open mic poetry event on the Tiddy Tent stage. Come along, bring something to read and show us what you’re made of!
