Lemn Sissay | Let the Light In

Winter Festival 2023


As dawn breaks each morning, Lemn Sissay composes a short poem. He has done this every day for the past decade. The poet, playwright, comedian and acclaimed author returns to Cambridge to present his life-affirming and characteristically witty new collection of these stirring sunrise poems, Let the Light Pour In. Expect resilience and defiant joy. 

Introduced by the New Statesman‘s Britain Editor Anoosh Chakelian
