Lemn Sissay: Let the Light Pour In

Literature |

Doors 8pm | Tickets £18.50 | Theatre

For the past decade, Lemn Sissay has composed a short poem as dawn breaks each morning. Life-affirming, witty and full of wonder, these poems chronicle his own battle with the darkness and are fuelled with resilience and defiant joy. Let the Light Pour In is a collection of the best of these poems, and a book celebrating his morning practice.

Join us as Lemn celebrates the release of this new book in person in our theatre.
