Prepare to have your preconceptions of poetry shattered. London’s smash-hit stand-up poetry night, Rhymes With Orange, are creating a very special quick-fire night in celebration of mums and motherhood.
Expect much laughter, a few tears, surprises, shouting and maximum fun.
Our regular featured poets will be showing off their most original mum material in support of Child.org's Team Mum appeal. Bring your mum.
This event supports Child.org’s Team Mum appeal. We’re working to launch pregnancy support services in rural Kenya, where 1 in 26 babies die before they reach their first birthday.
VAULT Festival are contributing a percentage of ticket sales from this event to arm new mums in Kenya with vital health information and medical support. You can help by donating to Team Mum when you book online or in person at the venue. This appeal is supported by UK Aid Match which means if you give before 30 April, your donation will be doubled by the UK government. (Only donations to Team Mum and not contributions from ticket sales are eligible for UK Aid Match, but it all supports the Team Mum appeal!)
Rhymes with Orange run a riotous London poetry night in Dalston. We've got 5 star reviews, performed for such varied audiences as Edinburgh festival, Standon Calling and South Downs Poetry Festival (our fave).
