    Presented by Writers’ Centre Norwich and Norfolk Black History Month in Association With Renaissance One.

    Enjoy an evening of powerful performance, laughter and brisk word-play with Caribbean poets John Agard and Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze.

    Both poets will have you hooked from the start. John Agard, who currently holds the Queen’s Medal for Poetry, is loved by adults and children alike. Playful, yet full of purpose, poems such as Mr Oxford Don, Limbo Dancer at Immigration and Half Caste have become classics. Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, from Jamaica, inspires audiences around the world with her mastery of the politically powerful ‘dub’ artform. She is the author of many poetry collections and in 2013 was awarded an MBE for Services to Literature.
