27.1.2017 - Polari, Southbank Centre, London

The first Polari of 2017, now in its tenth year!

Curated and hosted by author Paul Burston with Stella Duffy, Rosie Garland, Nathan Evans, Chris Chalmers and Ann Mann

Level 5 Function Room at Royal Festival Hall
The Southbank Centre
Belvedere Road,
SE1 8XX London

£5

You’re guaranteed mischief and sparkle as this beloved LGBT literary salon returns for its 10th year.

Stella Duffy reads from her new book, London Lies Beneath, as the first headliner appearance for Polari at Southbank Centre in 2017. Inspired by real events, this is the story of three friends, and a tragedy that will change them forever. It is also a song of south London, of working class families with hidden histories, of a bright and complex world long neglected. London Lies Beneath is a powerful and compelling novel, rich with life and full of wisdom.

Joining Stella with readings from their latest works are Rosie Garland, Nathan Evans, Chris Chalmers and Ann Mann.

London’s award-winning LGBT literary salon continues to showcase the best in emerging and established testimony to queer hearts and lives. Polari is curated and hosted by author and journalist Paul Burston.

Recommended for ages 18+

I am delighted to announce the launch of ‘As In Judy’ – my new poetry collection with Flapjack Press. It’s my first solo poetry publication since ‘Everything Must Go’ (Holland Park Press 2012). I’m really excited.

I wish to express heartfelt gratitude to Char March for her generous editorial input, without which this collection would be far weaker.

And to Ruth Fainlight, for her inspiring suggestion that ‘As In Judy’ would make a great title.

Both John Hyatt and David Hoyle have made blushingly complimentary comments about the poems.

“The reason I love Rosie’s work so much is that she provides food for thought. She addresses issues that need addressing, and imagines the inner and outer landscapes we all inhabit with eloquence and grace. Shed your light, Rosie.” David Hoyle 2016

“You spend all that time trying to understand the world, its family relationships,
friendships, social systems through a serial adventure of episodes mundane and
or memorable. You spend all that time trying to fit into the human. Then, you are
propelled into realisation through a life-threatening disease. Travelling not
outward into the world but inward to the beating heart of the matter, you dive
deep into the DNA. You are the resplendent there. You are the clicking queen of
the insects. When you dress again in flesh and skin, you go amongst the sleeping
humans and new and glittering worlds are left in your wake. Welcome to Rosie!”

John Hyatt 2016

Love hearing and meeting great poets? It’s second Tuesdays at Writers in The Bath

With special guests Rosie Garland & Stephanie Bowgett
Welcome to our final programme of 2016 - and we’re going out not with a bang but a dazzling conflagration (I hope not literally - the open fire is usually well behaved) but in terms of the brilliance of our awe-inspiring guests.

We’re honoured to have two writers who have both made massive contributions in diverse ways to literature and entertainment in the north of England. Both are making significant journeys to reach us, so let’s turn out in force to welcome them to the warmth of The Bath.
