New Additions at the Galle Lit Fest, Win Free Festival Passes

3 January 2017 - 140   - 0

The organisers of the Fairway Literary Galle festival have announced  three new additions to the programme,” the release states:

“Kate Tempest is an acclaimed musician, poet, novelist and playwright. Her epic poem, Brand New Ancients, won the 2012 Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry. Her album Everybody Down was nominated for the 2014 Mercury Music Prize. Tempest’s work refuses to recognise genre boundaries, moving with verve through performance poetry, rap-style narratives against a backdrop of electronic music, a novel and plays. During her visit to the Festival, she will perform from her new album Let Them Eat Chaos, a long form poem. Half-spoken, half-rapped, the 13 tracks on Let Them Eat Chaos follow the inner and outer journeys of some inhabitants of London, as they leave their private worlds to eventually discover each other’s existence – catch her at her Thinking Out Loud session on Friday January 13 from 9.30-10.30 a.m.  and when she joins Dinah Jefferies for their Literary Dinner on Friday January 13 at Tamarind Hill.

“Nayanjot Lahiri, whose talk on the Emperor Ashoka sold out within hours of the box office opening, has offered do a second talk for disappointed festival-goers who didn’t get into her Ashoka event. Her new talk, titled Finding Forgotten Cities: How The Indus Civilization was Discovered, will be on Thursday January 12 from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.In it, this acclaimed award winning historian will bring to life the people, processes and puzzles that led up to the unearthing of Mohenjodaro and Harappa, and also give us wonderful glimpses into this great, lost civilization.
