Words are influential seeds that shape our leaves as we grow into our very own poet tree.
Welcome to Poet Treehouse; a place to escape the pressures of society, a place that supports other artists, a place to freely express yourself.
There will be exciting headline artists at each event and a chance to grab a hot drink or beer from Caffi. To finish, there will be an open mic session – if you have something to say, then let’s hear it!
Join a community of poets, artists, rappers, writers and storytellers. Perform, sit back and enjoy the local talent!
Experience the power of the words, rhyme and flow; plant your seeds, watch them grow.
Our May headline performer is:
Growing up in South London, Annotate (aka Liam Spencer) developed a passion for storytelling at a young age. He carried this passion into adulthood and began his creative journey studying Film and Broadcast Production at London Metropolitan University.
In late 2015, Annotate came across spoken word for the first time and, using his love for storytelling, began writing poetry. He quickly amassed a massive following on Facebook and generated over 60,000 views across social media on his spoken word videos. In 2018, Annotate began performing regularly on London’s spoken word circuit during which time he was named a FLO Poet by award-winning singer, songwriter, and poet, Natalie “the Floacist” Stewart.
He has since built an audience of over 6,000 total followers on social media, and drawn on his film knowledge to create spoken word short films designed to bridge the gap between the two mediums. In addition to headlining BT Sport’s ‘Sport in Words’ broadcast, Annotate has performed on BBC Radio London, Islam Channel, and appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Confession Couch’ discussing the importance of positive mental health.
