LOU HICKEY: Lyrical pop with a vintage twist! Lou shares tunes from her latest EP Minutes, Hours, Days.
CAROLINE BIRD: Critically acclaimed poet and playwright. Bird is also, without a doubt, one of the most powerful live poets in the UK, whose readings combine wit, humour and a sense of delivery not always found in poets who write initially for the page. Bird’s most recent collection Watering Can (Carcanet Press) received a Poetry Book Society recommendation.
SOPHIE COOKE: Cooke's work deals with the concealment of truth on various levels, from personal self-deceptions to governments misleading the public. She is the author of the novels The Glass House and Under The Mountain.
Music from the highly recommended LAKE MONTGOMERY!
And the spellbinding VOICEBOX PHYSICAL THEATRE COMPANY
