The UK's best night of words and music.



Book Slam is London’s original, biggest and best literary shindig, founded by superstar musical maverick, Ben Watt, and author and screenwriter, Patrick Neate. Ben has long since moved on to pastures new, while Patrick still likes to think he's in charge. But, these days, the real work's done by experienced promoter, Elliott Jack. Everyone loves Elliott. Really, they do. If you come down, please say hello. Book Slam happens when and where we can make it happen, so sign up to the mailing list to keep track of forthcoming events.
