Would you like to perform at this year’s festival?

Calling all up and coming poets and comedians!

This is an open invitation to apply to perform in the Spoken Word Tent on Saturday 17 June 2017 in Crystal Palace Park.

Can you deliver a four minute engaging and entertaining performance?

Are you keen to reach new audiences?

We’re looking for applications from talented poets and comedians.

To apply for one of the ten available slots, five for comedy and five for poetry, please send us an email to performance@crystalpalacefestival.org with your name, contact details and a short personal bio along with a link to YouTube, or similar, showing your four minute performance. Please put in the email subject line whether you’re applying for a comedy or poetry slot.

It doesn’t have to be a live performance in front of an audience, just something that shows the material you’d like to deliver. Complete novices welcome to apply and no age restrictions with the young and the not so young equally sought!

Deadline for applying is 5pm on Friday 5 May 2017. Then, poet Joe Duggan and comedian Charmian Hughes, who’ll be hosting and introducing you on the day, will make the selection and we’ll contact to let you know if you’ve been successful.

The very best of luck.
