Award-winning arts and current affairs podcast, Stance present a fresh culture-filled look at Heartbreak in London.

Expect energetic performances and lively discussions around the creative responses to heartbreak, exploring its strong emotional impact including:

  • Poetry from award-winning writer Bridget Minamore's debut collection, Titanic which explores the sensibilities surrounding love and loss. Themed around a series of popular songs and a certain sinking ship, Minamore riffs from poem to poem with a choice selection of humorous and sombre verse.

  • Stand-Up from award-winning comedian, Yuriko Kotani, who will delight audiences with a showcase taken from her slick new set. (Yuriko won the BBC New Comedy Award 2015 and has been on a string of prime-time comedy television shows since then.)

  • Tips on how to create your own zine from the founder of Achy Breaky Heart Zine – a heartbreak zine which explores breakups, relationships and love

  • Discussion with The Quietus Reviews Editor Anna Wood on London’s most significant musical heartbreak classics

  • Agony Aunt advice from relationship psychologist and broadcaster Anjula Mutanda who will be on hand to answer all of our Heartbreak enquiries throughout the evening…

This event is part of Second Home's City Life Festival. Running throughout October, the festival will explore the relationship between urban spaces, communities and identities and champion London as a place of inclusivity and diversity.
