Some Lovely People We Have Worked With

 
                               


Innovative

Poejazzi is one of the few music and spoken word organisations that manages to combine top quality live performances with innovative ideas and writing. Gareth Lewis - Tall Lighthouse

Diverse

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

Supportive

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