Double Vision - Listen Festival in Canary Wharf (2)

From the booklet of events this was a wide range of different genres of performances; spanning live lunchtime music, Have a Go Singing, Film screenings, Comedy and of course – Poetry. These events ran from September to December of 1998.

This was the second event of Poetry in Performance as part of the ‘Listen’ festival. This performance was billed as ‘Double vision’ and showcased the talents of two excellent exponents of their craft – Brian Patten and the now legendary, Linton Kwesi Johnson.

This was the evening performance for this date, which was National Poetry Day 1998.

There was subsequently another evening performance on the 11 November 1998.
