Congratulations to Raven Maguire for taking the crown at our Superheroes of Slam 2015 Liverpool heat. Great work from all our entrants and our runners up Tom George and Bradley Thompson.
We had a fantastic evening watching all 13 very talented performers! Some were writers, rappers and poets, others were there as they wanted to try something new. It was a brilliant evening of diverse work from Liverpool poets and performers. Thank you to all involved.
Raven will be taking part in the Superheroes of Slam final in Manchester on 23rd October Three Minute Theatre. Everybody come down and cheer on Raven. Find out more here.
