From the preposterous to the profound…

Posted 2nd Feb 09 by in News

London’s only alternative literate-arts festival is back. After twelve months spent conscripting the wittiest, wisest wordsmiths on offer, we embark on a mission to spread the good word and drive back the borders between traditional artforms.  

Back comes the heady mix of live literary talent, high-profile comedians, musicians and performing artists; we venture further out into the unknown. New highlights include psychogeographical perambulations, film premières, a mini-festival of internet nerd-absurdity and much more. We’ve enlisted the likes of Phill Jupitus, Mary Hampton, Iain Sinclair, Bishi and Robin Ince in our mission to spread the words.

From the preposterous to the personal and the profound, we celebrate everything inspirational about the written and spoken word. It’s the only festival cooking up a thick-stew of words ancient, modern and futuristic, plated up in East London’s best alternative venues and all toasted with a large glass of well bottled bon-homie
