NNF & WCN present John Agard

Monday 15th May 2017
8:00 PM



Norwich Arts Centre

Roll Over Atlantic

Part of the City of Literature Programme
at Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017




Winner of the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry, Caribbean- British poet John Agard performs a quirky reimagining of the notorious voyage of Christopher Columbus. Written in verse and performed against a background soundscape of Atlantic murmurings and mosquito symphonies, Agard’s satirical one-man show takes his audience on a fantastical, fanatical historic voyage into the birth of a new world that still bears relevance to contemporary issues.

“Agard is a mesmeric performer” Peter Forbes, Poet and Critic


Event runs: c. 2 hrs (including interval)


The City of Literature programme at Norfolk & Norwich Festival is presented in association with Writers’ Centre Norwich and UNESCO City of Literature.
