The eagerly anticipated Nottingham Poetry Festival returns from 26 April until 5 May. Get ready to experience a range of fantastic spoken word events from some of the country’s best-loved poets across the city.

The first black poet to be published in Penguin Modern Classics, Linton Kwesi Johnson’s work has always been political, vital and necessary, drawing attention to topics like systemic racism, police abuse and National Front attacks, calling for government, institutions and society to be held to account.

His performances are gripping and true to a quote he gave in a 2008 interview: “Writing was a political act and poetry was a cultural weapon”.

Support comes from Jamie Thrasivoulou and Bridie Squires.

Event supported by Nottingham Trent University’s Curated and Created programme.

 

Please note this is not a music performance
