Poetry & Lyrics Festival

Thursday 6th June 2019 - Friday 7th June 2019

A festival about the love story between poetry, music and lyrics.

Poet in the City’s genre-defying festival returns to Kings Place, celebrating the relationship between words and music. The festival brings together musicians and poets spanning genres from jazz, neo-soul, punk, and disco.

Headliners this year include Lavinia Greenlaw and special guests with their nostalgic Village Hall Disco, Belinda Zhawi and members of Steam Down Collective performing a genre-bending jazz set to the words of poetry’s lesser-known Black foremothers.
