Sonnet Youth is a spoken word house party. A literary rave. A real life piss up in a brewery – bringing together poets, authors, rappers, comedians and musicians for a night of no holds barred performances.

And for the first time Sonnet Youth will now take place in Glasgow and Edinburgh!

Curated and hosted by Kevin P. Gilday – Writer & Spoken Word Artist andCat Hepburn – Writer & Spoken Word Artist, our first double header is a treasure trove of cultural gems:

– Man of the moment Loki the Scottish Rapper performing a live interpretation of his best selling book Poverty Safari.

– Award winning Canadian slam champion Andre Prefontaine.

– Surreal short story writer and master of social weirdism, Chris McQueer – Writer.

– Anti-folk troubadour and legendary banter merchant Chrissy Barnacle.

– Outrageous stand up from mould breaking comedian Amelia Bayler.


– Poetry from a bright new Scottish voice, multiple slam winner Sarah Grant.
