Hear the Word is a warm, welcoming spoken word event organised and run by Ruth Williams.

If you would like to read at Hear the Word, just turn up on the night and let Ruth know – we’d love to hear from you. It’s best to arrive before 8pm, otherwise speak with Ruth at the break and she’ll do her best to fit you in.

Hear the Word is divided into 3 segments. The first and third segments are spoken word with contributions from the floor. In the middle segment, a guest musician will perform a set of about half an hour.

We are always looking for new musicians to play at Hear the Word. If you would like to be our guest musician, please email info@hearthewordoxford.co.uk.

Hear the Word usually takes place on the third Monday of the month, every other month at 8pm. Check Facebook for details.

Admission is always free.
