Literary Death Match

Featuring A.L. Kennedy and many more

Wednesday 14 May

A night out full of verve and spirit, with a little madness thrown in for good measure; come and celebrate an evening of sharp word play. 

Wild words will ricochet around the atmospheric Adnams Spiegeltent as Philip Langeskov, Isley Lynn, Emma Jane Unsworth and DW Wilson compete in an edge-of-your-seat and humorous read-off.

Comedian and broadcaster Viv Groskop, writer and performer A.L. Kennedy and local live literature artist Luke Wright will judge the competitors' performances and decide which wordsmith deserves to compete in the final showdown. Our three judges will provide witty commentary and cast the final votes, but who will be crowned the ultimate Literary Death Match champion? 

Event runs: c. 75 mins (plus interval)
