"London's premier spoken word and music night" - The Southbank Centre

Dedicated to showcasing unique new talent with established names we love

We have curated forward thinking and eclectic sellout shows at The Southbank Centre and The Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room, and some seriously good times have been had at venues such as Proud Galleries, The Roundhouse and at festivals such as Bestival, Latitude and In The Woods. We have received two five-star reviews at Edinburgh Festival, been named Time Out Critic’s Choice several times and included in its list of 101 Things To Do Around London.

More importantly than what others say about us, is how we have featured many acts who have gone on to become mainstays in the spoken word and music scene, which just goes to show how creepily aligned our tastes are with yours! Poejazzi line up favourites include Ed Sheeran, Scroobius Pip, Polarbear, Kate Tempest, Fiona Bevan and Jamie Woon. Our sensory compass dictates that we only promote established acts that we feel are deserving of the extra recognition or new artists we feel need to urgently occupy a space in your life.

We curate events for institutions, organisations, and festivals. To contact us about curating an event for you please email us at Past clients include The Mayor's Thames Festival, Camp Bestival, The Southbank Centre, and The Roundhouse.

One of the UK's most important outposts for the future of the spoken word. Passionate, open to new talent, diverse, and above all authentically interested in substance rather than style, it's a London treasure. Tom Chatfield - Prospect Magazine


Poejazzi has supported and nurtured a wide range of artists in London and nationally. Sarah Ellis - The Royal Shakespeare Company
