Bad Language is back, and it seems a bit earlier this month thanks to this crazy short month. It’s cold, it’s a bit wet, it’s a bit grey but not inside the back room of The Castle where we bring you stories, poetry and slightly off-kilter presenting by two hosts just about keeping it together. They will introduce the usual mix of high quality open mic performers and another sensational headliner, who this month is ROSE CONDO.
Rose Condo is a writer, performer and spoken word poet who hails from the Canadian prairies. Based in West Yorkshire, Rose has won poetry slams in Manchester, Newcastle, York, Crewe and Edinburgh. She has previously competed in the Hammer & Tongue National Slam at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and in the BBC Slam at the Edinburgh Fringe. Rose has written and toured two solo spoken word shows (The Geography of Me and How To Starve An Artist) and is regularly invited to perform at gigs and events across the North. She can frequently be found riding trains surrounded by notebooks mumbling words to herself.
Joining Rose on our open mic are:
