They’ve rocked Glastonbury and the Roundhouse, and after two sell-out performances at Cheltenham, Tongue Fu are back by popular demand! Bringing together the sharpest poets, storytellers, comedians and rappers to perform with improvised soundtracks from the genre-hopping Tongue Fu Band, this is a riotous experiment in live literature, music and improvisation that’s sure to shake up your Saturday night. With special guests Sorcha Fox, Chris Tse and Wana Udobang.

It’s poetry, but not as you know it… amazing
