Featured Artists: UoB Slam Team

The University of Birmingham's slam team is comprised of Mikey Barnes, Sean Colletti, Anne Gill, Kimberley Knaggs, Hannah Ledlie and Hannah Swingler. They competed in UniSlam 2018, where they placed first in the competition, giving Birmingham its first overall win. Hannah Swingler also won the competition's inaugural coaches' slam, and Sean was awarded with the Spirit of the Slam distinction. Four of the teammates went on to perform at CUPSI in Philadelphia, and Mikey was chosen to be showcased on the finals stage of that competition - one of only two solo performances chosen from over 60 teams. The team, because of winning UniSlam, will be performing at the Hammer & Tongue slam in 2019.
