Film: Contains Strong Language

A few of our favourite moments from Contains Strong Language, the nation’s newest poetry and performance festival.

In September, we were the proud host of a brand new BBC festival, celebrating established and emerging talent from the global poetry, spoken word and performance scenes. A staggering 50 events took place over an action-packed four days, featuring the likes of Kate Tempest, Dr John Cooper Clarke, Tracey Thorn, Ben Watt, Kate Fox, Isaiah Hull and Cerys Matthews, to name a few.

Watch our highlights film to discover some of our best bits.
