Poetry Festival: An evening with an immigrant

with Inua Ellams

Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams will tell his ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant- story. Tales of escaping fundamentalist Islam in Nigeria, performing solo shows at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or a place to call home.

This event will take place in The Shakespeare Centre, Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6QW. Booking is essential, tickets are available online, or at our ticket offices at any of Shakespeare's Family Homes.
