An evening of raucous spoken word with the region’s newest, angriest and funniest Feminist poetry collective.


Featuring Allanah Jo‑Ann Peck, A.N.G, Hazel Thomas, Jess Kemp, and Amy SoapBox, with a special guest ‘token male poet’ on each night. We will also be hosting a game of Feminist Bingo, with coveted prizes such as equality and tins of soup up for grabs. Join us as we explore in words and verses – once and for all – why we still need Feminism today.


Part‑time poet and full‑time poetry advocate, Amy SoapBox (aka Amy Wragg) is the founder of getonthesoapbox (est. 2006), an arts collective that runs poetry and music gigs across the East. Specialising in festivals, Amy is best known for her work on the SoapBox stage at FolkEast and the decor she makes by hand from recycled materials. Passionate about championing the local creative community, and committed to gender parity in her line‑ups, Amy is a committed feminist and poetry producer.
