As a promoter I am obviously pleased
that tickets for next Saturday evening
with Benjamin Zephaniah are selling very well....
For those of you that might be thinking of coming along the advice is to buy your tickets beforehand (although a few might be available on the door on the night)
An Evening with Benjamin Zephaniah
Saturday 17th February 7.00 for 7.30pm
Town Hall Lewes
Benjamin Zephaniah was born in Birmingham, but spent his early years in Jamaica where he absorbed much of the music and poetry that influences his work.
Nominated for Chair of Poetry at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Nelson Mandela has described him as his favourite poet.
Ever surrounded by controversy, Zephaniah publicly rejected an OBE from the Queen in protest of British government policies, including the decision to go to war in Iraq.
The evening at the Town Hall will include readings, questions from the floor and book signings
Seats: £18.50 (Concessions £13.50) - ADVANCE BOOKING ADVISED - and ONLY from 01323 841414 (A few seats may be available on the night)
