SUMMARY

Marking the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots, award-winning author Alex Wheatle MBE presents his moving autobiographical story of how he became a writer.

Inspired by his best-selling novels, Brixton, Rock and East of Acre Lane, Alex takes you on a journey through Britain in the 1980s. From the brutality of children's homes to life on the frontline in riot-torn Brixton and sharing a prison cell with a fierce Rasta-man. A journey punctuated by the muscular singing of lyrics that made Alex the famous ‘Yardman Irie' of the Brixton club scene.

The 50 minute performance will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. The performance contains some strong language.
