Book Slam is the ultimate book club; the ‘heartbeat of literary London’ as they like to ascribe themselves. Specialising in organising the finest literary events over the past decade their guests have been treated to spending the evening with the likes of literary heavyweights such as Zadie Smith, Dave Eggers and Hanif Kureishi, poets that include Robin Robertson, Jackie Kay and Don Paterson, musicians in Adele, Paloma Faith and Plan B, and comedians Mark Watson, Stephen K Amos and Robin Ince.
The latest Book Slam is certainly no exception as it features an eclectic line-up with the sesquipedalian of the literary world, Will Self, the 28-piece Basement Orchestra and the hilarious Piff The Magic Dragon all in attendance to a night hosted by comedian, Andrew buy
Held at The Round Chapel in Clapton, E5 the three-course meal comes courtesy of Hoxton Food Hall. Tickets cost £45 per head or £360 for a table of ten. Everyone who’s attending is urged to arrive promptly as doors open at 6.30pm. Supper will start with or without you at 7.15pm sharp, while the evening’s entertainment will kick-off at 9pm.
With a delicious feast, fine wine (from City Beverage), a beautiful venue, the best in literature, hilarious comedy, exceptional music and a magician dressed as a dragon you’ll surely all be right on time.
