Both Salena Godden and Vanessa Kisuule took to the stage to support Ted Hughes award winner, Hollie McNish during her book launch for her new book called Plum.
It was a fantastic evening with the whole of the chapel filled to the brim with scintillating and hilariously funny poetry from all three amazing performers and icons within the women's poetry scene.
In attendance were poetry and spoken word lovers, mums with babes held to their chests and even a few people knitting. It certainly had everything.
Also, the juxtaposition of the venue and the words being spoken within it also added an element of intrigue to the night. Especially with a full house within a crowded chapel in the height of London playing host to some of the UK's best poetical talent was incredible.
What was evident from this event is that female spoken word performance poetry is at it's peak and stronger than it has ever been. With the continued success of the artists involved and other key poetical figures it's certainly paving the way for future female poets to make their way to these amazing heights.
