The Details...

It's back... for third year! 

One of the firm fixtures in the SproutSpoken calendar, you are invited to SproutSpooken - the Halloween Edition! 

Dress up and drop in for a drink and a spectre-acular evening of spooken word. 

And this year we have some very special guests...

Hosting the evening, we're delighted to be welcoming our friends from across the border - the Spork-Up Collective. 

Four artists from across the South West join forces to bring you a poetry show like no other. Full of tricks, treats, improvised poems & audience games. Expect, silly, soaring, never-boring, very spooky spoken-word as we celebrate Halloween in style!

Featuring a quadruped of incredible performers: Saili Katebe, Harula Ladd, Edward Tripp & Chris White. Plus a Halloween-themed open mic...



Get involved in the open-mic. Bring us your poems on the optional theme of: "fear". To sign up, please email Dicky at . If more than six poets want a slot, a name will be picked from a (spooky, obvs) hat on the night.


It's Halloween, so come along in your best costumes. The poets will select their favourite fancy dress to win a cheap bag of sweets, a homemade trophy, and our undying adulation.

SPORK! is a spoken-word producer based in Exeter, supporting artists across the South West and presents: 


CHRIS WHITE is a returning SproutSpoken favourite; a submerging artist and multiple slam winner who’s performed his spoken-word comedy up and down the UK, from Tongue Fu to Latitude as well as running Spork! 

HARULA LADD is the current Exeter Slam Champion, and a poet whose work is deeply rooted in community. Her poems are warm, welcoming and beautifully woven, with a punch that’ll leave you winded

SAILI KATEBE is a Zambian-born poet and writer (making his return to SproutSpoken), a former SS Great Britain poet-in-residence, a frequent slam winner, and an incredible performer, delivering spoken-word that cuts to the core of what it means to be human.


Once described as a cross between Dave Allen and David Lynch, a comic poet and performer who squashes the surreal with the sincere, making work that’s funny, deeply strange and often a little depraved.


SproutSpoken is kindly supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. This season sees SproutSpoken pop up in spaces all over Newquay, including Sprout Health Foods, St Michael the Archangel, the Huer's Hut, Whiskers, Fore Street Cafe, Newquay Orchard and The British Legion.
