Poets, writers and storytellers take to the stage to perform live, amplified by the improvisation genius of the Tongue Fu band and masterful live visuals.

You won’t believe it till you see it. Experience mind-blowing collaboration-in-motion, only at Tongue Fu.

Tongue Fu is one of the UK’s leading spoken word and music shows. Created and hosted by poet and musician Chris Redmond (BBC R1, 2, 4, Sky Arts), it’s a riotous and critically-acclaimed experiment in live literature, music, film and improvisation.
