Stage times
Doors: 7.00pm
Daudi Matsiko: 7.45pm – 8.15pm
LYR: 8.45pm – 9.45pm

As a part of Nottingham Poetry Festival, Simon Armitage (UK Poet Laureate), Patrick James Pearson and Richard Walters are LYR.

LYR is Land Yacht Regatta.

Their debut album Call In The Crash Team is the culmination of a triangular collaboration that took shape against a backbeat of social alienation, a backcloth of austerity politics, a search for beautiful noises and the uncontainable urge to fuse language and music.

An album that gives poetic voice to acts of resistance and surrender, Call in the Crash Team is a sonogram of small personal victories, an audio X-ray of momentary emotional capitulations, and a twenty-first century soundscape that echoes the exquisite ache of day-to-day life, all the lovely heartbreaks and the painful joys.
