Internationally renowned Jamaican poet Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze fills words with power and uses the power words hold like few others can, so the chance to be in the presence of such a captivating writer and performer is a great one, and that chance comes to Culture Lab in Newcastle on Thursday 21st April.

With political and personal messages the core of her work, she still manages a rare ability to connect with an audience, even with more challenging subject matter, and it’s hard not to be inspired by someone so good at their craft. Her latest poetry collection, The Verandah Poems was just published in March by Bloodaxe, and this great mind and great soul will bring to life words the words from the pages within.
