Book Slam, which was launched eight years ago at Cherry Jam in Paddington, combines spoken word and live music and typically features an eclectic mix of contributors.
Tuesday's event at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill will see performances by Heidi Vogel, lead singer of the Cinematic Orchestra, Rachel Rose Reid, who was recently named Young Storyteller of the Year, and Francesca Beard, a Book Slam favourite.
Book Slam fans who have not yet bought their tickets are urged to do so as soon as possible as the event usually sells out quickly - tickets to last month's event, a tribute to influential author Gil Scott-Heron, were gone in just 90 seconds, forcing the organisers to move to a bigger location, The Grand in Clapham.
Book Slam has become hugely popular in London and inspired a range of similar events in the capital.
Elliott Jack, one of the event's directors, said: 'There are some copycats, you could say. It's a healthy scene. But we definitely do the whole thing bigger and better.'
Mr Jack added that although the event now has a core of loyal fans, some of whom have attended every performance since the first night, it offers something for everyone who is interested in an unusual literary night out.
'I've heard it been called a 'night out for grown-ups' before but it's a real diverse range of people who turn up - from all kinds of backgrounds and age groups. Everyone finds something to enjoy.
'And in terms of popularity I don't think it hurts that we manage to get the big boys in,' he added, referring to writers such as Irvine Welsh, Zadie Smith and Caitlin Moran as well as musicians like Plan B and Adele who have all appeared at a Book Slam event in the past.
