"Where The Streets meet William Shakespeare"

David Scott AKA Street Poet ARGH KiD combines an intoxicating mix of street smart rhymes delivered with sharp wit and hilarious anecdotes. ARGH KiD’s work has been broadcast across the globe through his collaborations with Manchester United Football Club, UEFA, New Era Sportswear… to name but a few. He counts Christopher Eccleston and Liam Gallagher as fans and has been recognised by Visit Manchester as one of the region’s Greatest Poets.

Young people across the country are benefiting from ARGH KiD’s stunning Spoken Word Workshops that are tailored to the requirements of the organisation and students – from creating social awareness campaigns, confidence building to creating a sweet bit of need relief from the stresses of exams.

His workshops have been so well-received that BBC Breakfast ran a Short Film covering his work to the country as part of National Poetry Day.

Contact today for more information and a consultation on how ARGH KiD can work with your students.
