Pocket Change: April 30th to May 6th

Pocket Change is our list of fun creative events in and around London. (I’ve personally attended most of what I list, and they’ve all helped me along my creative journey!) If you’d like your creative event listed or know of something you think others would enjoy, let us know!

Genesis Cinema is back with (my personal fave) their slam poetry event! It’s three rounds, and if you get there early enough, you may get a chance to be a judge and show your support for all your favorite slammers!

Email poetry@genesis-cinema.co.uk if you feel like signing up to perform!

When: Thursday, May 4th, 7pm

Where: Bar Paragon, Genesis Cinema, 93-95 Mile End Rd, London, E1 4UJ

It’s always a free event, but you’ve still got to grab a ticket!


Delayed Gratification is holding a workshop to teach you all the tips and tricks to learn how to run your own indie mag! If you want a sneak peak, Marcus attended a previous DG event and wrote all about it!

When: Thursday, May 4th, 6:30 pm to 8:15pm

Where: Strand Campus, King’s College, London, WC2R 2LS

Grab your tickets! (If you subscribe to the mag, you get event tickets cheaper…plus you get the magazine. Just sayin’.)
