This evening join us for an exciting performance with acclaimed author and poet Lemn Sissay and guests. Lemn is a BAFTA nominated International prize winning writer and was awarded an MBE for services to literature by The Queen of England, The Pen Pinter Prize and a Points of Light Award from The Prime Minister.

There will also be a live performance from the Tan Teddy Jamaican Folk Group, as well as a virtual presentation and Q&A by installation artist, Lawrence Chikwa, and virtual performance by acclaimed jazz pianist Guy-Marc Vadeleux.

This is part of  BLACK* artists on the Move’s  History is Now! Festival, which is an exploration of how history and the present moment converge, seeking to spur us on to deeper understanding and greater action.

Across three performances over several days, an international programme of BLACK* artists will present a feast of dance, theatre, song and spoken word to examine and celebration the complex histories of BLACK* communities around the world.
