 RTB/Milk presents Spotlight - Bath







 Performance Event

  Venue: Komedia Bath
    22-23 Westgate Street, Bath
Monday 27th November

Raise the Bar's 'Spotlight' open mic event at Komedia Bath on the 4th Monday of every month. 

November's edition will feature none other than New Zealand born and London based poet Ben Fagan, with the official launch of his brand new collection 'Some Traveller'.

’Spotlight’ events have an extended poetry open mic and champion and nurture local artists.

Ben Fagan
Ben is a spoken word poet and producer from Aotearoa New Zealand, currently based in London. He is a TEDx performer and organiser, and has shared his work across the UK, USA and NZ. Ben has taken two poetry shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and tweets for Apples and Snakes. Alongside UK Slam Champion Sara Hirsch, he won the Edinburgh Fringe Anti-Slam and came second in the national finals, making them the second-worst poets in the UK.

Some Traveller: Welcome to the big city. You've spoken to friends and family, downloaded all the right apps, joined the facebook groups, but still feel lost. The last thing you need is more advice, so here's a hot tip: this book of poetry can help. Some Traveller shares stories of love, death, family and what happens if you wear jandals in London after it's been raining. This collection will encourage any future travellers and give company to those feeling far from home. Also, puns.

£3 (on the door)
