Linton Kwesi Johnson , Metronome, Nottingham - 4th May 2019

My first time at Metronome and what an introduction. Linton Kwesi Johnson commands respect from the moment he enters a space. Perfect evening. Thank you.

Linton Kwesi Johnson , Metronome, Nottingham - 4th May 2019

There is nothing like hearing the narrative that led to the creation of a collection of poems that highlight historical issues to bring home the need for more cohesion in out communities. Having first discovered LKJ's poetry back in the 90s when I was studying post colonial literature as part of my degree, I was delighted to have the opportunity to hear him perform his poetry and meet him in person. On stage he has the presence and resonance to silence a crowd and leave them with a powerful message. Despite the horrors and the hardships, I left the event feeling exhilarated and hopeful for harmony in the future.

Linton Kwesi Johnson , Metronome, Nottingham - 4th May 2019

This event was well organised with two support acts who held their own. The main act - Linton Kwesi Johnson - was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and had clearly lived a life where his actions matched his words. The only downside was that the venue got very warm towards the end to the point of being uncomfortable which made it difficult to concentrate. Other than that the venue was great with a fully licensed bar and an accessible, central location.

Lorraine Mariner , Waterstones Bookshop, Nottingham - 30th April 2019

Great evening at Waterstones. The best poet by far was Leanne Moden. Relevent, heartfelt and funny. I related to her poetry far more than the other 2 poets. Fully enjoyed all though.
