MATT ABBOTT: TWO LITTLE DUCKS 🦆🦆

Matt Abbott was volunteering at the Calais Jungle refugee camp when his native Wakefield voted 66% Leave. Why did so many working-class communities like his support Brexit so strongly? How can the UK ignore a humanitarian crisis just 22 miles from Dover? And does anything ever actually change for people like Maria?

This is a powerful, personal and political spoken word show from one of UK poetry’s rising stars. He channels the human side of politics to look at national identity, preconceptions, class and anti-establishment anger. Poetic flair and storytelling, with a unique insight into the summer that changed everything.

Doors 7pm. Show start 7.30pm.
First half: Matt Nicholson — Poet and Geneviève Walsh: Poet.
Interval: 8.15-8:30pm.
Second half: 'Two Little Ducks' (finish 9.30pm).
