Book Slam @ Celebrating Sanctuary
Free, 2 - 7 p.m.
Book Slam makes our annual sojourn to our favourite festival, the launch of Refugee Week and a celebration of sanctuary. It's all free, it's all family, and it's all about the one and only LEMN SISSAY, official Olympic poet; CERYS MATTHEWS, singer songwriter and broadcaster, collaborating with ATTAB HADDAD on the oud; the oh-so-soulful TANYA AUCLAIR; and REEM KELANI, bringing the music of Tahrir Square to the South Bank. Hosted by MICHAEL ROSEN and JEREMY HARDY.
