Join us for this special celebration of new talent, as students from four Manchester secondary schools perform original poetry created as part of a term-long project delivered by Wordsmith – an arts organisation whose work focuses on inspiring creativity in schools.

Produced as part of Black History Month 2015, this vibrant and empowering multi-arts showcase also features performances from poet and singer Zena Edwards, who was the winner of the Hidden Creatives Award in 2012 and was nominated for the Arts Foundation Award for Performance Poetry in 2007. Lyn Gardner called her ‘a superb performer.’ Sharing the bill is Manchester’s talented young producer, MC and singer King Burga. This event is sponsored by Specsavers and supported by the Madeline Mabey Trust.
