with Keith Payne, Xavier Queipo and Su Garrido Pombo

Keith Payne: The Savage Acres, is a contemporary poetry performance which celebrates the everyday; hymns to kitchen islands, homilies to the turn in the stair and rhymes to the cascades of profiterole desserts that come tumbling our way. This reading will be delivered in Payne's signature and engaging style.

Awarded the Aodh Ruadh Ó Domhnaill Poetry Exchange 2023, Xavier Queipo's poems delve deep into the marine world where he spent much of his working life. As a biologist and poet, Queipo shares his wonder at the great whales and astonishment at the velvet crabs, as he sings canticles to sand, foam and waves.

The Patios of Light from multi-award- winning singer Su Garrido Pombo, follows the road of a hundred turns down from the mountains of Vigo, in the northwest of Spain. When we’d get back to the city, we’d fall silent, until our mothers sang lullabies that rose through the patios… Patios of Light is the hymn to those neighbours, those women, our grandmothers, sisters and aunts who made that journey.
