We are back! Come help us celebrate 5 years of BORN::FREE at our Veranda event!

BORN::FREE, one of London’s leading platforms for African and Afro-diasporic poetry and experimental writing, presents the next edition of Veranda, a series of experimental performance events centring Black British voices. With a focus on critique, creation and craft, this will be a curated & relaxed evening of poetry in celebration of contemporary Black British writing & poetics of past, present & possible futures.

September’s birthday edition features 3 poets joined by our house band – a group of young musicians who will be jamming throughout the night. Curated by poet/educator Belinda Zhawi, writer/filmmaker Chima Nsoedo & writer/theatre-maker Malakaï Sargeant, expect an informal yet insightful evening of live performance and readings packed with laughs and deep hums; many lessons and many lessons.

Open mic slots available – email [email protected] with examples of your work and if you would like to do something with the band.

This event is for over 18s only. No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
