Funny fun

PUBLISHED: 11:56 13 May 2011

WORD of Mouth, the monthly spoken word event, returns to Bristol Old Vic for its stunning May chapter.

It will feature performances from Bristol’s achingly-funny punk poet Byron Vincent and the international queen of the dub spoken word, Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze on May 23.

The next Word of Mouth event, on June 23, will feature Sally Jenkinson, Rembrandt Clarke, Al Cummins and Nathan Penlington.

Word of Mouth forms part of a series of collaborations Bristol Old Vic is forging with organisations in Bristol and beyond throughout 2011 and 2012, while most of the theatre is refurbished.

Tickets, priced £8-10, are available from the box office on 0117 987 7877.
