Listen Softly London_Sept (2)

Jake Wild Hall, Jess Glaisher and Math Jones take to the LSL for a great night of literary entertainment.

There is also an open mic with 5 available slots, which you can secure by clicking on this ticket link and booking an open mic slot.

Jake Wild Hall is the 2016 Spirit of the PBH Free Fringe and a multiple slam champion. He’s the host of Boomerang Club, one of London’s warmest and most well-loved poetry nights, which enjoyed a popular full run at Edinburgh. He’s performed at the Royal Albert Hall and opened for Daley and Afrikan Boy at the Lyric. His work has appeared in the London Spoken Word Anthology. Jake is a vegan chef who loves the combination of peanut butter and hot sauce, and the father of a boy named Solomon.


“Watching this man perform is like watching someone dance.” David J

“When he opens his mouth honesty comes out in a truly unique way.” Yomi Sode

“Insane word play, enrapturing flows and enough syllables to fill a room full of hungry hearts. We love this boy. We love him like we would our own child. Come see our child!” Matt and Rikki (the F.W.Y.H team)


Jess is a writer, performer and lighting designer living in London. She is a queer feminist and activist, whose writing focusses on LGBTQ+ character representation, mental health visibility, and the lives of women. Her story ‘Destiny’ appears in For Books’ Sake’s anthology ‘(Re)Sisters’ and her work has also appeared in Novelty Magazine and on Dear Damsels. She is currently working on a novel, Dear Lina, a speculative piece on the subject of inheritance. She writes alongside an incredible, inspiring creative collective of women who met through the Write Like a Grrrl course. And (because she wasn’t quite busy enough already) she has recently started performing as a drag king and recently made her Edinburgh fringe debut.


Math Jones is a book seller, actor, and Dad of two grownups, from London. He has been using words for a long time, and now they’re using him. There’s some kind of world he’s in, and it might not be a real one, but he’s trying to write it down to show you, because there’s some kind of world you’re in too.

He has a book coming later in the year, another to be published in 2019, as well as a spoken-word album of Pagan verses, and a one-man show of dramatic verse, The Knotsman.
