Emerging once again from the depths of winter and surveying the harbour from our icy ledge, we look forward to the bright glare of spring on the horizon and the clamour of a thousand artists, armed with sledgehammers to break us from this frightful entropy and project us into a new year - full of experimental doings and extreme disillusionment.

Luke Wright & Molly Naylor Stand Up & Spoken Word

Luke Wright is one of Britain's leading stand-up poets. Comic, wistful, sometimes tragic his visceral, punchy poems feature ordinary people having extraordinary moments. Whether touring with punk legend John Cooper Clarke or wowing crowds at international arts festivals, Wright dresses the ancient form up in it's Saturday night best and gives good poem.

"His lexical acrobatics are astounding, often motor-mouthed and breathtakingly honest…Go for the wordsmithery, stay for the painful poignancy.” The List

“Wright perfectly captures the glamourless pulse of mainstream Britain and transforms it into rhythmic, transcendental beauty…Quite simply, this is the future of popular poetry.” The Skinny

"Cool poems" Patti Smith
