Save The Male returns to Ace Hotel

Save The Male #5 boasts a huge line-up as Cecilia Knapp brings in Anthony Anaxagarou, Zia Ahmed, Jack Miguel and Michelle Tiwo and more.


Poet, writer and CALM ambassador Cecilia Knapp returns to the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch on Thursday 15 February with some of London’s most prolific spoken word performers and artists.

Save The Male blends poetry, comedy and music – championing creative self-expression as a means of coping with life’s challenges. Now on its fifth outing, the much loved night will showcase a range of young performers who’ve found strength through speaking up and speaking out.

Check out some of the performers and grab your tickets below:

Anthony Anaxagorou

Anthony is a British-born Cypriot award-winning poet, fiction writer, essayist, publisher and poetry educator. He has published nine volumes of poetry, a spoken-word EP and a collection of short stories.

Jack Miguel

“Jakaboski” is a poet and rapper from North London. Rooted in language, his practice encompasses sound design, sculpture and moving image. Jack was the first poet and rapper to attend the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama where he gained a masters degree with distinction on the Leadership programme and was awarded the Guildhall ‘Starred’ award for his exhibition ‘King Bones’.

Michelle Tiwo

Michelle’s work is mostly reflective- of herself and her communities, Nigeria & Togo via South East London.

“As a poet/writer my goal is to speak the truth as I know it to be, give a voice to those who believe they have none and heal myself and others in the process. I believe every person has a story and that there is power in owning and telling those stories on your own terms.”
