Poet: Jacob Sam-La Rose

Jacob has a very impressive CV (we’re kind of nervous about meeting him, even though he’s lovely). He’s developed poetry and performance programmes with the British Council, National Theatre, Roundhouse, Apples and Snakes, Tate Britain and more – including the Barbican, where he nurtured the Barbican Young Poets (head to St Swithun’s for lunchtime on Sunday 11th and you can see some of his protégés in action).

His work has been published in various anthologies and he’s got two collections of his own work: Communion, published in 2006, and Breaking Silence, due out in October.

But the best way to appreciate poets is to see them in action…

Jacob performs at the poetry night on Thursday 15th September. See the events page for more detail and online booking.

    I saw Jacob Sam-Larose perform recently at the BBC Proms 2011 Plus Lates and he was easily the stand-out artist of that event. There is no need to be intimidated, although he certainly makes for an inspirational role model. Indeed, I would encourage people, especially young people, to attend your poetry night. His reading of “Dumb” left quite a few, even some grown men, visibly affected, dare I say misty-eyed.
