My Name is Why: In Conversation with
Lemn Sissay at Metronome

Thursday 16th September 2021
Metronome, Nottingham
Winner of the best non-fiction book at the 2021 Indie Book Awards, this is Lemn’s life story: a story of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph. Lemn Sissay will be reading from his Sunday Times Bestselling Memoir, reflecting on a childhood in care, self-expression and Britishness, and in doing so exploring the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home.
Infused with all the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the nation’s best-loved poets, this moving, frank and timely event is the result of a life spent asking questions, and a celebration of the redemptive power of creativity. 
Poetry Party 2021
Sunday 26th September, 12pm - 8pm

Antenna, 1a Beck Street
Roll up, poetry people.

It is time for our first Poetry Party of 2021. Everyone welcome!
The full Nottingham Poetry Festival experience will be in spring ‘22, which feels like a long way off right now. So, in the meantime, we’ve decided to feed your poetic appetite with a knees-up at Antenna on Beck Street in Nottingham.
Expect spoken-word performances, an open mic, a live DJ, and a few surprises thrown in for good measure.

Write a collaborative poem, take part in a workshop, win absolutely nothing playing Poetry Bingo and show off your brain cells in the first-ever Nottingham Poetry Festival Quiz, hosted by our chums at UNESCO City of Literature.
