Wed 15 Jun | 7pm | Pay What You Decide

A unique opportunity to be inspired by the voices of young people from Yorkshire and Lancashire as they share their incredible poetry and spoken word!

Celebrating 10 years of the group, Ilkley Young Writers are launching their new anthology, ‘Ilkley Young Writers 10 Year Anthology: Words Hanging Off Trees’, featuring work by current and former members, many of whom are regular performers on the local scene. Covering topics from sexism to environmental panic, their work is both highly relatable and bound to spark big conversations.

The Beyond Labels Collective comprises of 12 young emerging spoken word artists from The Hollins School based in the East Lancashire town of Accrington. Using creativity as vehicle for self-expression the collective have produced a power-packed anthology of spoken work poetry – discussing topics ranging social justice, equality, unity and the environment. They will be sharing two short films – ‘Sentiments of Unity’ and ‘Call from Nature’

In partnership with Ilkley Literature Festival, Beyond Labels, The Hollins ‘Cohesion through Creativity’ Initiative, Young Identity and Spoke Poetry Hub.

Wed 15 Jun | 7pm | Pay What You Decide

All our events are Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the event. We want to encourage more people to come and see events at Kala Sangam, more often.

Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for an event in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the event. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the event starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.

If you have ANY coronavirus symptoms, please DO NOT attend.
