Freak SpeakPeterborough's newest poetry & spoken word night, bringing you the best kind of punch-you-in-the-gut poetic talent from across the country. Freak Speak is a quarterly poetry night in Peterborough, funded by Arts Council England, and produced by me, Charley Genever, Peterborough Poet Laureate 2016. I have some great people helping make Freak Speak awesome; making the poets sound wicked we have the amazing Harry Carter of HJC Sounds, and documenting our 2016 Freak Speaks we have the incredible Rosie Cooper of rxc photography. Freak Speak's primary aim is to provoke. By bringing the nation's best word-smiths to Peterborough, we aim to provoke people to pick up a pen and have a go at poetry things. We also give tadpole poets more opportunities to metamorphose into performance poet frogs, by offering paid support slots at each event, and a masterclass run by one of our headliners.
