KATE TEMPEST + Guests – Thursday 23rd May – Bedford Esquires

To say we are excited about this event would be a massive understatement – One of our favourite artists is coming to the venue for a special All Points East Festival warm up show, and we’re honoured that Esquires has been chosen as the venue to host it!

Kate Tempest was born in London in 1985. Her work includes the plays Wasted, Glasshouse and Hopelessly Devoted; the poetry collections Everything Speaks in its Own Way and Hold Your Own; the albums Everybody Down and Let Them Eat Chaos; the long poems Brand New Ancients and Let Them Eat Chaos; and her debut novel, The Bricks that Built the Houses. Her most recent collection, Running Upon the Wires, was released in September.

She was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for both her albums, for Best Female at the BRITS 2018 and received the Ted Hughes Award and a Herald Angel Award for Brand New Ancients. Kate was also named a Next Generation poet in 2014 and nominated for the 2016 Costa Book Award for Poetry.
