Celebrating its meteoric rise in popularity, including 15 films broadcast on Channel 4 so far, the stand-up poetry night is back after the summer break with a special launch night of the newly published Bang Said The Gun Anthology - 'Mud Wrestling With Words'.
The book includes poems by John Hegley, Salena Godden, Elvis McGonagall, Hollie McNish and 2013 Ted Hughes Prize winner Kate Tempest and has a forward by Ian McMillan.
There will be an all star line-up this Thursday of eleven performers including Matt Harvey and John Osborne.
Bang regular Rob Auton (who has just won 'Best joke of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival') will also be performing.
