A diverse, energetic triple bill featuring performances from Andrew McMillan, Sabrina Mahfouz and Inua Ellams hosted by the founder of National Poetry Day, William Seighart.

Andrew McMillan’s debut physical – a raw, urgent and deeply moving collection of hymns to the male body, friendship and love – was the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award…

Sabrina Mahfouz is a poet, playwright and campaigner. Her work includes the plays With a Little Bit of Luck and Clean; the poetry collection How You Might Know Me; and the literary anthology The Things I Would Tell You: British Muslim Women Write, which is currently long-listed for the Grand Prix Literary Associations Prize.

Inua Ellams is an award winning poet, playwright & founder of the Midnight Run. Identity, Displacement & Destiny are reoccurring themes in his work in which he mixes the old with the new, traditional with the contemporary.

This is part of Second Home Poetry Festival running from 6-9 June. All profits will be donated to The Rugby Portobello Trust who support programmes set up in response to the fire at Grenfell Tower.
