Caleb Femi Poets' Evening

In the next of our series of curated events, the Academicians’ Room will be filled with poetry by some of the UK’s most exciting young poets.

After his wonderful set at the EXPRESSWAY night in February, poet Caleb Femi returns to the Keeper’s House as performer and curator. He’s accompanied by two special

guests and fellow poets, Sumia Jaama and Theresa Lola.

He has written and directed short films commissioned by the BBC and Channel 4 and poems by Tate Modern, The Royal Society for Literature, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Guardian. Caleb has also won the Roundhouse Poetry Slam and Genesis Poetry Slam and is currently working on a debut pamphlet.
