Away With Words is Hull’s longest running spoken word open mic night. It has been going for more than seven years! Held in the very cool Off the Road Live Lounge, it is THE place to be if you love spoken word poetry. Its host, Jim Higo, is a regular performer and travels all over the country doing spoken word gigs. Talented guy. But as Jim says “Its not about me, its about you…” so feel free to pop down third Thursday of the month and show him what you’ve got!
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, all events are cancelled until further notice. But we will be back! We don’t know when, but we will be back!
Jim Higo is a popular poet on the Hull scene and around the country. His style is raw and gritty, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet. But always fantastic. He travels the country doing gigs both alone and with other poets, such as JB Barrington and Marvin Cheeseman. He has also had shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.
He has just published a new book called Sussed which is full of his brilliant poems.
