An Evening with Lemn Sissay
Sat 10th October, 7pm

Google the name “Lemn Sissay” and all the returning hits will be about him because there is only one Lemn Sissay in the world. Lemn Sissay is a BAFTA nominated award winning writer, international poet, performer playwright, artist and broadcaster.

You are not too late to book a ticket for tomorrow’s broadcast of An Evening with Lemn Sissay.

‘As the winter months draw in, it has never been more important to look after your mental health.’

How appropriate it seems that such an inspirational figure should be imparting an insight into how to overcome adversity, in this year of all years, on World Mental Health Day.

‘Pay What You Feel’ Policy

Having presented our digital outreach programme for free thus far, sadly as this situation has gone on much longer than we thought, we now feel that we must adopt a mechanism that is helping keep the prospect of theatres reopening globally a possibility, and that is to ask that any future content is purchased on a ‘Pay What You Feel’ basis. This also enables us to offer this FREE to Friends and Patrons of Clonter.
