The Lyric Lounge, Leicester, 30 July - 1 August

There is a attractive poetry event in Leicester the weekend after next - the Lyric Lounge:
For three days and three nights, New Walk Museum will become Lyric Lounge Leicester!

A whole range of free activities will run from 10am until 10pm and take place across the museum. In the day, chill out with coffee, tea, books and films, draw with festival artist in residence - Tim Clarke, or choose from an impressive host of poetry workshops and happenings - from ‘Get Stuffed!’ to ‘The Decadent Romantics’ and the amazing ‘Combust Circus’ company. Be entertained with music and poetry over ‘Lyrical Lunchtimes’ and mid morning ‘Bites’, chat to The Book Doctor, or take to the mic yourself.

In the evening catch everything from WORD! with Mark Gwynne Jones and the Psychicbread, to John Hegley - The Godfather of performance poetry. John will be performing his brand new show, ‘The Adventures of Monsieur Robinet’ - against a back drop of museum objects.

With a line up that includes poetry from the internationally acclaimed, Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze and music and lyrics from the likes of Kenny Wilson, Mike Sole and ILUVLYRICS, ‘Lyric Lounge Leicester’ invites participation from people of all ages and is definitely not to be missed.
The Lyric Lounge will also come to Nottingham and Loughborough later in the year.
