We are excited to welcome Irish poet Stephen James Smith for a return visit to Thorner. His performance here in 2019 was mesmerising; now back with a fully immersive spoken word experience to support his forthcoming album, with live illustration and musical accompaniment, this is set to be an unforgettable evening.
