Bad Language presents stories through the wide lens of history. Especially commissioned writers tell tales with long timelines and wild visions from civilisations that have shaped the world today.
The stories will take the theme of building or destroying, and may be told through music or poetry. Experience the oldest tradition of all – passing on tales – with a truly modern twist. Bad Language are twice-winners of UK Best Spoken Word Night and hold monthly events in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
