Inua Ellams’ R.A.P Party
Our final London Borough of Culture 2019 Inua Ellams R.A.P Party is taking place at Leyton Sixth Form College on Thursday 19 September, following hugely successful parties in Walthamstow and Leytonstone. Neither a club night nor poetry reading, rave nor literary event, Inua Ellams' R.A.P Party is an unashamedly nostalgic, fun, no clutter, no fuss, evening of hip-hop inspired poems and favourite hip-hop songs.
Polish Jazz London Series: Kuba Więcek
The next concert in the Polish Jazz London Series featuring composer and saxophonist Kuba Więcek is taking place at St. Mary’s Music Hall on Thursday 19 September.
