Kitch! With Anthony Joseph
Arriving in London on 22 June 1948, Trinidad’s famous calypsonian Lord Kitchener would go on to become an icon in a time when the face of Britain changed forever. Poet, musician and writer Anthony Joseph weaves Kitch’s life story into a lyrical narrative in his new novel, drawing on the colourful politics and people captured in Lord Kitchener calypsos. Come and hear the music of Windrush and the words of a consummate storyteller in this special event, where poetry and prose collide.
