The Grand Slam

In its third annual year, Bankstown Poetry Slam presents the Grand Slam: a fierce competition of words from Western Sydney's sharpest wordsmiths. Sydney's only team based spoken word competition will see 32 finale contenders and 8 teams battle it out for first place.

We are proud to announce that, after two successful years of hosting our finale at the Art Gallery of NSW, we have moved to a bigger venue this year, and will be hosting the Grand Slam at Sydney Town Hall!

The Grand Slam will be showcasing the passions, stories and struggles of the top four scoring poets from every monthly slam event of the Bankstown Poetry Slam.

Bring your best clicking fingers and stomping feet and revel in the energy of the Bankstown Poetry Slammers at this one night only event.
