      EVENT DETAILS
      Kate Tempest

      Kate Tempest has been rapping since the tender age of 16. She started out by practising her rhymes in front of unsuspecting strangers on night buses and pestering MCs to let her show off her skills on the mic at raves. Her passion for language and rhythm was ignited by hip-hop. Ten years on she's a published playwright, novelist, poet and recording artist. Her spoken word performances have 'the metre and craft of traditional poetry, the kinetic agitation of hip-hop and the intimacy of a whispered heart to heart'. In 2013 she became the first person under 40 to win The Ted Hughes Award for innovation in poetry and Roots Manuva said 'her works are truly of upliftment and betterment'. High praise indeed. Check out Brand New Ancients for a taste of the rhymes to come. I implore you to clear a space in your diary for Kate Tempest.

      Cost: 20.00
