The Albany Theatre
Albany Road,, CV5 6JQ Coventry, United Kingdom
Matt Abbott Poet and Norwich Arts Centre present:

Matt Abbott was volunteering at the Calais Jungle refugee camp when his native Wakefield voted 66% Leave. Why did so many working-class communities like his support Brexit so strongly? How can the UK ignore a humanitarian crisis just 22 miles from Dover? And does anything ever actually change for people like Maria?

This is a powerful, personal and political spoken word show from one of UK poetry’s rising stars. He channels the human side of politics to look at national identity, preconceptions, class and anti-establishment anger. Poetic flair and storytelling, with a unique insight into the summer that changed everything.

Doors 7pm. Show start 7.30pm.
First half (two support acts) until 8.10pm.
Second half (the main show) until approx 9.30pm.
