Luke Wright – Live from Barrow 4.20pm – 5pm

Luke Wright discovers more about Barrow through the eyes of the poets who’ve been inspired by this coastal industrial town.

Broadcast live to Radio 4.

INTERVAL

Kate Fox – Bigger on the Inside 5.20pm – 6pm

Poet and comedian Kate Fox once thought receiving a positive diagnosis for autism had as much a chance of happening as a female Doctor Who. As such, since the Doctor’s 13th incarnation (played by Jodie Whittaker) in 2018, Fox’s life has changed quite a bit.

This uproarious and smart hour-long show looks at autism and Asperger’s through the theme of Doctor Who, as Fox takes us through the ways the venerable sci-fi show has shaped her view of the world. Fox is a stand-up poet and broadcaster, a regular voice on Radio 4 and a “gentle activist” and campaigner for the voices of Northerners, the working class, women and the neurodiverse to be heard.

Luke Wright & Cobbler: Better Off 6.20pm – 7pm

Luke Wright is one of Britain’s most celebrated live poets. He was recently dubbed the “bard of lockdown” by The Telegraph after his mammoth stint of 100 straight online gigs. He’s won a Fringe First and The Stage Award and often tours with both John Cooper Clarke and The Libertines.

Cobbler is a sample-based electronic producer hailing from Sheffield. He’s been part of Reverend & The Maker’s touring band and his debut album Cobbler_01 was released in May 2020.

In this, their debut live show, Luke Wright & Cobbler present their forthcoming album, Better Off. Cobbler’s dark beats and bold arrangements provide the perfect backdrop for Wright’s lyrics on addictive impulses, familial love, and societal break-downs.
