In putting together liming events, we felt that introducing a carnival sensibility was one of the best ways to introduce newcomers to literature and spoken word. It offers a convivial and welcoming environment that helps to encourage a range of audiences to try it out.
Our Liming on Tour took the spoken word party and the cosmopolitan vibe of Trinidad 'liming' culture to each venue we travelled to – offering short tasters of Poetry, Fiction and Spoken Word, interspersed with Soca, Brazilian, Reggae, Hi-Life and dance tunes played by our house DJs including Charlie Dark and Psykhomantus.
We toured to Liverpool, Nottingham, Leicester, Ilkley, Sheffield, and a special showcase at Bestival in the Isle of Wight.
"I was impressed by the mix of performers. I think these evenings are a great way for people to find out about new writers who they might not otherwise come across. You may come for one author and discover a whole new range of talent. I did." Undercover magazine
