Bang Said The Gun is poetry for people who don’t like poetry.

Voted the best poetry night in the UK by the Times, Bang Said The Gun has made poetry cool again

A rollercoaster of emotions, it’s loud, raucous, political, trivial, serious and very funny. Normal rules do not apply here.

Featuring a rich mix of the best and freshest talent, they will grab you by the collar and drag you into another world.

As recommended by Kate Tempest, It’s like mud wrestling with words, or as ex poet laureate, Andrew Motion puts it ‘BSTG is a vortex of energy and enthusiasm’.

Not to everyone’s taste. Oxford University said it’s the death of poetry but you can decide here at the Bloomsbury.

"Like all the best things in life, Bang Said The Gun is done with commitment, belief and passion." Phil Jupitus.

‘An anarchic beano, much imitated across the country’. News week.

"Bang Said The Gun is the best poetry night in the country. The combination of excitement, enthusiasm and deep, deep concentration on the poems is a wonder to behold." Ian McMillan. BBC Radio.
