It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

A Night of Food and Agony

Jay Rayner – on piano, joined by sax, bass and singer Pat Gordon-Smith – tackles songs that deal with food and drink. Alongside that, in a series of brilliant anecdotes, he reminisces about his childhood growing up with his mother, the late Claire Rayner. Because, as he says ‘so many blues songs sound like a letter to an agony aunt’. Cue tunes like Black Coffee and The Ladies Who Lunch, Food Glorious Food and Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me To The End of Love.
