Women's Day : Women Say Stuff 2

Wednesday 8th March, from 6pm onwards
Venue: Sobar 

‘Women’s Day: Women Say Stuff 2’ is presented by DIY Poets, and is a celebration of the female voice. The show, which takes place at Sobar on Wednesday 8th March, will be filled to the brim with talented performers, with featured sets from three top spoken word artists from across the UK and around the world:

Sparklechops (aka poet and academic Orla Shortall) is a former DIY Poet originally from Ireland by way of Nottingham, who now calls Aberdeen her home. Her performances are raw, profound and poetic, and littered with musical and literary references. Frequently funny, often heart-breaking, her writing bridges the gap between the personal and the universal, and her engaging, witty writing really shines on stage.

Mina Minnai is a singer and poet from Iran who now lives and works in Nottingham. She is co-founder and organiser of Word Jam, an inter-cultural music and poetry group that encourages performs from all countries and backgrounds, and she regularly performs in both English and Farsi. Mina’s poetry is mesmeric, hugely uplifting and brimming with emotion, frequently touching upon the themes of identity, lost and new beginnings.

Clare Stewart is a poet and performer based in Nottingham, and a member of the DIY Poets. Clare is a prolific writer with a gift for deftly examining the minutiae of everyday life in an engaging and thought-provoking way. She is not afraid of rhyme and rhythm, and her performances have a understated balance that make her a firm favourite on the Nottingham poetry scene.


Alongside our three fantastic featured poets, there’ll also be an open mic, with three-minute slots available for local poets and writers, open to women, girls and anyone who identifies as female, available on a first-come, first-serve basis; please sign up on the night

Entrance to the show will be ‘pay what you can’ and all proceeds from the event will go to support the work of two excellent local charities: Nottingham Rape Crisis Centre and POW Nottingham.


So, whether you’re keen to perform, interested in helping support a good cause, or curious about seeing new talent and fantastic headline poets, ‘Women’s Day: Women Say Stuff 2’ is happening on Wednesday 8th March at Sobar, Friar’s Lane, Nottingham.

The poetry begins at 6pm, with hot food available until 6:30pm, and non-alcoholic refreshments and cakes available all evening.

Sobar is a fully accessible venue, and children are welcome to attend, but please be aware that some of the performances will include language and themes of an adult nature.
