Matt Abbott


In 2013 I co-founded A Firm Of Poets, and in 2015 I formed Nymphs & Thugs. I’m an ambassador for Trinity Homeless Projects, CRIBS International and Eureka! The National Children’s Museum; Poet-in-Residence at the National Coal Mining Museum for England and Efficiency North; and a resident CP at The Hepworth Wakefield.
He is an award-winning comedian and winner of many major poetry slams, including The Great Northern Slam, The UK Anti-Slam and the BBC Fringe Poetry Slam 2015.

From 2007-2013, I fronted alternative pop act Skint & Demoralised, through which my lyrics received global critical acclaim. I’ve been a political activist since my spoken word career began in 2006, and am a loyal member of the Labour Party.
