Arvon North is delighted to welcome Lemn Sissay back to Hebden Bridge.

Lemn’s connection with Arvon goes back to his teenage years when he came to Lumb Bank to do a writing course which had a profound effect on his creativity. For the past decade, Lemn has started each day by writing a short poem. His latest collection gathers together the best of these in one inspiring volume, Let the light pour in.

‘How do you do it?’ said night. ‘How do you wake up and shine?’

‘I keep it simple,’ said light. ‘One day at a time.’

Come and experience this phenomenal performer live in Hebden Bridge.

Single ticket: £16.50

Concession: £14
