"Toria's words are silk javelins. Frank explorations of self, outpourings of a joyfully pained mind. She means it. Cos she's lived it. I love that girl" Mike Garry
"pOWERFUL, ACCESSIBLE, INTELLIGENT AND MUSICIAL. JUST ABOUT ALL THE THINGS I LOVE IN A POET" PROFESSOR BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH
"THE LYRICAL MACHINE GUN" MATT ABBOTT

Toria Garbutt is a poet and educator.

 

Since bursting onto the scene in 2014, Toria has been a regular tour support for Dr John Cooper Clarke, most recently on his ‘Luckiest Guy Alive' tour on which Toria performed at venues across the UK and Europe.  

 

In 2016 Toria released her Debut album 'Hot Plastic Moon’ with spoken word label Nymphs and Thugs and in 2018 her first poetry collection ‘The Universe and Me' was published by Wrecking ball press.

Toria's second collection 'Another Time in Space' is due to be released in December 2022.

Toria’s words have also been featured in Not Too Tame’s Northern Souls show at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and recently in The Guardian for their feature on The Rise and Rise of the New Poets.  In September 2021, Toria featured on the front cover and centre fold of The Big Issue North. 

 

Toria delivers spoken word workshops to a variety of community groups, schools and prisons.  She is passionate about using poetry as a vehicle for self-expression and connection. 

Toria has a BAhons in Arts Education and a PGdipE in Lifelong Learning.  

 

Catch Toria on tour throughout 2023 with Dr John Cooper Clarke and at venues across the UK with her solo show Another Time in Space.
