This night will also feature sets from two acclaimed poets, including Elle Dillon-Reams (as featured on the Guardian and BBC Radio 6, alongside Arlo Parks and Tim Key). The second feature act will be announced very soon.

Funded by Arts Council England, Off The Chest was founded in 2019, and has since produced multiple poetry nights to sell-out audiences, across London and further afield. Don’t miss their third return to Omnibus Theatre.
