Spoken Word — Festival Contributors

Are you a Poet, Storyteller, Walkabout act or Cabaret Artist? ...Word Up! is the Buddhafield venue that models authentic self-expression and honours Oral Traditions. We like to make people laugh and model upbeat truth-telling with plenty of participation.

We are always looking for keen Buddhafielders who have a show, or a piece to contribute, so tell us more about what you can offer… (Unfortunately there are limited tickets available; so it must be said we are more likely to favour acts who maximise stage time with fewer performers or +1s, or those who have a selection of acts, workshops or offerings). Thank you for your desire to contribute, and the generosity of offering your work.

We take care to craft a quality programme, themed through the larger context, so applications don't always guarantee selection. Please try again next year if you are not selected!

  A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on alcohol and recreational drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us and are accepted, then we’d expect this policy to be respected.
