Our headline music act is West End legend Peter Straker singing the more poetic songs from the Jacques Brel songbook.

Other music acts include Chip Martin’s recital of his epic-poem ‘Eagle’ accompanied by the electro-acoustic Nordic-noir soundscapes of Brudini and Barney Ashton from ‘Andy Bell is Torsten’ singing a selection of torch songs and reading some poetry from the books associated with the hybrid theatre and poetry ‘Torsten’ trilogy of albums and musical theatre shows.

This is all accompanied by the creme of London’s live poetry scene :  Warren Czapa, Sophie Milner, Mark Chamberlain, Lady Poe, Angus Strachan, Ms. Greenwash, Oliver Jones, Lucy Lyrical, Jennifer Nadel, Michael Dench, Conrad Gamble, Sophie de Beistegui, Heather Moulson and performance poet Dino Mahoney, author of the poetry collection ‘Tutti Frutti’, who gives a rare performance with his celebrated trio ‘Dino And The Diamonds’ with their signature mash-up of  ‘the camp, the political, the funny, sad and mad’. The group exist to ‘marry poetry and music by turning some of Dino’s poems into fully fledged theatrical songs!’

Come celebrate the official last day of summer with us until the dying of the light. (Dusk!!)
