Her Lost Language: The Power of Voice


An evening of inspiring poetry and conversation about British-BAME history.

About this Event

We welcome poet Jenny Mitchell who will perform from her prize-winning debut collection Her Lost Language which explores the impact of British transatlantic enslavement on black lives and family dynamics.

The poems weave between the Caribbean and Britain over the course of two centuries, and aim to liberate ‘unheard’ voices.

She is joint winner of the Geoff Stevens Memorial Poetry Prize and was a prize-winner in the Ware Open and Segora competitions. Her work has been broadcast on BBC2, Radio 4 and published in several magazines.

Special guests to be announced.

Doors open 19.00. Tickets £5 to include a glass of wine or a soft drink.

Bursary tickets available – please email [email protected] for more information.
