Kate Tempest Poetry Storm

Funny how people still talk about the tempest that devastated England in 1987. Here in the performance poetry world, we have one in permanent residence – and it’s getting stronger by the day. We speak of Kate Tempest – a young woman who’s driven by words and is on stage because she has to be. Tonight she’ll be doing some of her own 100mph thing for us, and introducing a few artists who are clocking up their own stormforce on the London circuit. With sets from Tshaka Campbell, bleue granada and The Brother’s Grim, and featuring Tempest’s own tips for the top, Dean McCaffrey and Len Hovis.

Batten down the hatches for an event that’s more than just a storm in a teacup.
