J B Barrington & Jim Higo

JB Barrington joins the Cheltenham Poetry Festival 2018 line up

Cheltenham Playhouse Main Stage, Saturday 28 April, 7pm. £10/8

We are delighted to announce that Salford’s spoken word superstar JB Barrington is coming to Cheltenham Poetry Festival 2018! 

JB Barrington is renowned for his searingly satirical poetry, and snarling delivery of strong sentiments and sharp rhymes.

A spoken word maestro who provides one of the most powerful performances on the UK scene, JB has performed to huge sell-out crowds across the UK and supported bands including the Sleaford Mods and The Charlatans.

JB’s fans include Johnny Vegas and Suggs from Madness and he has been praised for his “warm charm, rapier wit & a real appreciation of words” by Louder Than War.

JB will be joined by another Northern legend, Jim Higo.  Savagely witty, provocatively outspoken and seriously funny,  Jim has been praised for his  ‘edgy, acerbic wit and intelligent wordplay’ (Across The Arts) and his “thoughtful and razor sharp Hard hitting social commentary” (Three Weeks Edinburgh)
