Thoughts and Sounds at Liverpool Empire

Tickets from

Liverpool Empire Theatre Creative Learning is proud to present Thoughts and Sounds – our first spoken word event in the venue’s intimate Piano Bar.

The inaugural Thoughts and Sounds event will include the works of four poets from Liverpool’s spoken word scene, accompanied by experimental live jazz throughout. Poets appearing will be Wordy Lirpa, Saint Vespaluus, Cullo, Claire Beerjeraz, with music from Pablo Sonnaillon & Alex McDowall & Spoken Words.

Alex McDowall and Pablo Sonnaillon, also known as Bric-a-brac, play jazz standards in a style characterised by its fluid and whimsical changes of character – an avant-garde exploration within the jazz tradition with inspiration from musicians such as Jim Hall and Charlie Haden.

Wordy Lirpa is a poet and host from Liverpool and the creator of Outspoken Poetry, who brings a passion to create community within the city and occasionally writes about love.

Saint Vespaluus first began performing spoken word in Cambridge in the eighties, and after a (very) long hiatus, he returned to Liverpool in 2020. He has performed at festivals, Prides and in his own solo headline shows, as well as opening for rock bands and comedy performers.

Cullo, started writing poetry in 2017 and has released two collections of work, as well as founding Give Poetry A Chance. In addition to curating this series of free-to-attend poetry events throughout Liverpool, Dan has performed his poetry at various events including Blast!, Leap of Faith, Liver Bards, The Sunset Sessions, The Dreaming and more.

Claire Beerjeraz is a spoken word artist, writer, workshop facilitator, performer and creative therapist. Combining creativity with activism, Claire uses creative mediums for positive change, discourse and healing.

Please note this event takes place in the Piano Bar of Liverpool Empire Theatre.

Ticket price includes a free welcome drink (16+ event, so ID may be required at the bar).

The line-up is curated by Kunst Site, presented and produced by Liverpool Empire Theatre Creative Learning.
