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.

Pat Kirkwood is Angry

Artist in Residence Series

Written by and starring artist in residence Jessica Walker, Pat Kirkwood Is Angry brings to life one of Britain’s greatest, but now almost forgotten, wartime variety stars. In this onewoman show about the legendary singer and actress, we follow Kirkwood’s career as she became a household name with songs like Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered and It Was Just One of Those Things. Following rumours of an affair with HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, however, Kirkwood was haunted by scandal. Pat Kirkwood Is Angry relives her turbulent life through some of the 20th century’s most beautiful popular song.
