Manchester Literature Festival – Cabaret for Freedom

October 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£6 – £10

Join us for an evening of poetry and music reflecting on the theme of such a time as this. Special guests include Nigerian British poets Tolu Agbelusi and Yomi Sode. Tolu’s stunning collection Locating Strongwoman (Jacaranda) explores the unperformed self, womanhood, and the art of living. She is also a human rights lawyer and the founder of Home Sessions, a poetry development programme for young Black poets. Yomi has performed his work, including solo show COAT, internationally and his play and breathe… enjoyed a sold out run at The Almeida earlier this year. His first poetry collection Manorism is due from Penguin in 2022. There will also be music from up-and-coming vocal artist Shola Mcleod and new work from the Manchester based collective Young Identity. Hosted by Shirley May and presented in partnership with St John’s Church.
