Poets, writers and storytellers take centre-stage, accompanied by the quick-witted musicians of the Tongue Fu band. 

One of the UK’s leading spoken word and music shows for over a decade, Tongue Fu is led by poet, musician and founder, Chris Redmond (BBC Radio 1, 2 and 4, Sky Arts) and features musicians whose credits include playing for Jamie Cullum, The Last Poets, and Massive Attack. Tongue Fu is part gig, part experiment; a high energy, big hearted show with a wide appeal. 

In 2020 Tongue Fu released their first studio album, a poetic and political snapshot of the last three years in collaboration with leading spoken word artists including Vanessa Kisuule, Dizraeli, Amyra León, Anthony Anaxagorou and more. It’s been featured on BBC 6Music, BBC R1, 1Xtra, BBC R4’s Loose Ends, BBC Introducing and WorldWideFM. 

This showcase will feature special guests, local writers and is supported by Arts Council England.
