About the event

Jean Binta Breeze could fill Ledbury Festival's programme on her own. The unrivalled queen of dub poetry, she came to this country from Jamaica in the 1980s and was soon a fixture of the British poetry scene. Breeze has been compared to Maya Angelou. ‘Her poetry shifts effortlessly through standard English to a native Jamaican which has no equal in its emotional depth’ – Alexander Linklater, The Herald. Get ready to be moved, to laughter and tears. £9. For more information visit:
