What They Say
We think that Evidently is a great night, but you don't have to take our word for it! Here's what some of our lovely performers and attendees had to say!
"The clues are all there: hard work behind the scenes, a unique performance space, an up-for-it crowd, friendly hosting, top tech, a high standard of open mic and ace guests. Evidently a great poetry night!" - Tony Walsh
“Evidently, for my money, is without doubt one of the best spoken-word nights in the country. Brimming with Manchester’s customary sense of rebellion, artistry and swaggering streetwise cool, it never fails to attract a large and loyal audience usually hungry for something new and host Kieren King always delivers.
Acting as both effortless compere and staggeringly good wordsmith he holds together a brilliant monthly event, which has so far attracted some the UKs best and most outspoken talent from the performance poetry scene.
This is no Dead Poets’ Society – just dead good poetry. Do yourself a favour.” - Andrew Mulletproof Graves
"Thoroughly enjoyed @Evidentlyhq - a refreshingly unpretentious poetry night with a great vibe" - Mary J Lockwood
"Evidently seems to have found the right balance between delivering high quality and professional gigs and still being a friendly, inclusive and informal spoken word night that values the contribution of all its performers. It is a force for good on the Greater Manchester poetry scene and a great night out. I'm very proud to have been a guest performer there." - Sarah Miller
"Top talent and true camaraderie among word weavers and watchers. Beautiful." - Dominic Berry
