The In Conversation series continues with Lemn Sissay OBE, who will be joining Gavin Esler live in the Gulbenkian Theatre.
In Conversation is a series of events, not interview or lecture but, as the title suggests, a relaxed conversation – with audience participation encouraged. In September, join Gavin in conversation with Poet, Playwright and Broadcaster Lemn Sissay.
Lemn is an author of a series of books of poetry alongside articles, records, broadcasts, public art, commissions, and plays. Sissay was the first poet commissioned to write for London Olympics.
As a radio broadcaster, Sissay makes documentaries for the BBC. He is a regular contributor on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, which in 2008 was nominated for two Sony Awards. He also contributes to the BBC’s Book Panel.
Extend your evening after In Conversation with Lemn Sissay and Gavin Esler by joining us for a post-show dinner in Darwin Conference Suite. The dinner is a perfect opportunity for you to continue the conversation. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased after selecting your ticket to the event.
Our award winning in-house caterers, Kent Hospitality, will be serving a pre-dinner drinks reception followed by a three course meal with wine and coffee for a package price of £35.00 per person.
The menu will be announced shortly. We can accommodate your dietary requirements, but please email email@example.com if you are unsure about the options.
Donations and all ticket sales will support students through scholarships and hardship bursaries. If you would like to learn more about the Kent Opportunity Fund, please visit the website: www.kent.ac.uk/giving
