Join us on Saturday night for a LIVE show with Spoke Poetry Hub. Sharena and Simon will be hosting this event and will be joined by local artists who will perform alongside them.

Spoke have a regular radio show with BCB 106.6 FM where they discuss spoken word, poetry, and have guest speakers and performers. Their aim is to reach new places with spoken word and poetry, championing new & emerging artists and giving them a platform to perform and discuss their art and influences.

Sharena Lee Satti is a poet, performer, educator, and co-founder of Spoke Poetry Hub. Her latest collection,'She' , was recently published by Verve Poetry Press in 2020, and she often explores issues with cultural identity, childhood trauma and survival in her work.

Simon Pickles is co-founder of Spoke Poetry Hub, a Keighley-based poet and Open Mic host who uses his art and experience to reach the young and disadvantaged through spoken word.
