For 2020 and supported by Brent 2020 Culture Fund, Word Up is back with a program of workshops and stellar live events at the Royal Oak and online (during Covid-19) to continue the conversation we started with Harlesden in 2015.

As part of this project we will continue to champion emerging talent on our open mic and offer a program of creative workshops at Harlesden Library to offer development opportunities to Brent residents. Our workshops will focus on performance, writing, editing, found poetry and artist self care. They will be led by leading, established artists and writers.

All our events are FREE, but the workshops will require you to book to secure your free place.
