THE LIFE AND RHYMES OF BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

Sharing a selection of favourite stories and poems in his compelling and inspiring show, Benjamin Zephaniah explores how a life spent fighting injustice and discrimination has led to his remarkable life.


Unable to read and write at school, he still went on to became one of Britain’s most remarkable poets, a friend of Nelson Mandela, fight in the 1980's race riots and record radical reggae music with Bob Marley’s former band.  He is taking to the stage again after eight years to share his truly inspirational story in a show based upon his remarkable autobiography, The Life And Rhymes Of Benjamin Zephaniah.

Signed copies of The Life and Rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah will be available after the show.
