Speaking Volumes and A Firm of Poets bring Ranting poetry to Wakefield’s Red Shed as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations.
Accessible, protesting, diverse, inclusive, political, working-class, humorous yet also deadly serious, Ranting poetry was closely allied with punk and reggae and was the vibrant precursor of today’s spoken word and performance poetry.
Hosted by Matt Abbott, come and listen to Janine Booth, Ralph Dartford, Helen Mort and Tim Wells ‘keep the Red Shed standing here’ through poems that appeal to all and pack a powerful political punch.
This event is part of the Wakefield Lit Fest 2016.
