Bang Said the Gun

Featuring Dan Cockrill, Laurie Bolger, Rob Auton & Martin Galton
With special guests Inua Ellams and Joelle Taylor

Back at Brighton Festival for a second year is the poetry night for people that don’t usually like poetry. Kate Tempest called it ‘mud wrestling with words’, while The Times voted it the best poetry night in the UK. Normal rules do not apply here: Bang Said the Gun is loud, raucous, political, trivial, serious, and very funny.

Co-founder of Bang!Said the Gun, Dan Cockrill, chats to us about this year's event in our Festival Hot Seat Interview.
