Jean 'Binta' Breeze: Jibba Jabba

  • The Cumberland Arms James Place Street Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 1LD United Kingdom

Renaissance One and Apples and Snakes present Jibba Jabba: Newcastle’s favourite night of quick-fire spoken word entertainment, featuring Jean 'Binta' Breeze as their special guest.

The Verandah Poems is both a departure and a return for Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, who left her village in Jamaica to become an internationally renowned Dub poet and storyteller. This is a book of coming home and coming to terms, of contemplation rather than contention – of mellow, musing, edgy poems drawn from the life and lives around her. It is Breeze’s first new collection since Third World Girl: Selected Poems (2011), and is published on her 60th birthday.

Cost: £5 on the door
