Acclaimed poet Sophie McKeand premieres her new dystopian work Crøwoman at HATCH (8-9pm) – the latest in their diverse event programme – at a free night of spoken word and music, including two DJ sets (7-8pm and 9-10pm) by Rob Bright of Bugged Out! and Electric Chair fame. Having held the prestigious title of Young People’s Laureate Wales from 2016 until earlier this year, Sophie has performed at the Hay Festival and at a special poetry showcase at our very own The Creameries, and her poems have featured on the BBC and been performed by Michael Sheen at the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan Disaster at Wales Millennium Centre. Winner of the Out Spoken award for Innovation in Poetry 2015 and longlisted in the Poetry Society’s National Poetry Competition 2014, Sophie’s pieces have appeared in publications such as Poetry Wales, New Welsh Review and Dark Mountain. This new show follows on from her first full collection, Rebel Sun, which came out in 2017 on Parthian Books.

Sophie performs Crowoman between 8 and 9pm, with DJ Rob Bright either side. Free entry.
