About the Show/Event
Information for The Last Word Festival at Roundhouse, West End (Festival). The Last Word festival is home to a captivating mix of live performances that all have a story to tell. Featuring new work by established artists, rising talents and works-in-progress from home-grown performers, The Last Word shines the spotlight on themes of home, heritage, mental health, politics and musical journeys. 2017 highlights include: our ninth Poetry Slam where the best performance poets aged 16-25 are discovered; With A Little Bit Of Luck, taking place in our iconic Main Space, transports us back to the garage raves of our youth; in The Things I Would Tell You women writers of British Muslim heritage talk identity; Joshua Idehen and his band Benin City use banging tunes to tell coming of age tales in London's nightclubs; and John Hegley performs another brilliantly bonkers show as he rocks the Roundhouse.
