Jason Allen-Paisant: Bradford Literature Festival

Saturday 26 Jun 2021, 19:30 to 22:00

The Studio
Morley Street


Arrive engaged and prepare to leave inspired as we host a celebration of poetry and the written word, featuring a selection of the UK's brightest upcoming artists.

Inspired by the mehfils of old, which invited small groups into the homes and palaces of South Asian nobility to experience live entertainment, this annual and intimate event promises to stay with you long after the evening draws to a close.

Compere Kate Fox guides you through an unforgettable spoken-word showcase, featuring a headlining performance from John Hegley, and appearances by Joelle Taylor, John Siddique, Jo Brandon and Jason Allen-Paisant.

Jason's debut collection Thinking With Trees is published this month.
