…The Rhymes Won’t Wait Collective think so.

What is Rhymes Won’t Wait?

The new cutting edge of London’s spoken word scene.This is the first time a dedicated spoken word event will be performed collaboratively between mentored and leading artists, the material being written in response to some of the most pressing issues of our time, all in partnership with the UK’s leading charities.
Rhymes Won’t Wait will showcase what CONFLICT means to 18-30 year-olds from across the capital. Young artists will be invited to push the boundaries between poetry, spoken word and theatre, showing themselves, and the audience, just how far they can go ….             
Not only is the line up to this show breath taking, it’s also for a fantastic cause.  As if you needed convincing peep the promotional video
