Young poets want a word

THE Playroom at Nottingham Playhouse is to host an evening presented by Mouthy Poets on Saturday, March 31.

The event is called Say Sum Thin III with Kayo Chingonyi.

The Playhouse’s resident young poets have organised another evening of talks, discussions and poetry.

They are joined by Zambian-born acclaimed writer and performer Kayo Chingonyi, who will headline an energy-filled open mic night.

A powerful performer with a calm and authoritative presence, Kayo has taken his poems to high-profile stages such as Tate Britain, London Literature Festival, the Big Chill and Buckingham Palace.

The event gets under way at 5.30pm and tickets are available from the box office on 0115 9895555.
