Bradford Literature Festival: Imtiaz Dharker, Juan Felipe Herrera, Sophia Thakur, Charly Cox & Nadine Aisha Jassat

Are you looking to be inspired, entertained, and even enlightened?

Then join us for our annual candle-lit celebration of lyrical poetry. In the homes and palaces of South Asian nobility, mehfils were gatherings where audiences would be treated to intimate evenings of courtly entertainment. Today, our mehfil infuses the traditional event with a diverse set of voices and innovative performances that will stay in your mind long after the night is over. We’re joined by Nadine Aisha Jassat, Charly Cox, Sophia Thakur, Sabrina Mahfouz and Juan Felipe Herrera. The evening will conclude with a performance by award-winning poet Imtiaz Dharker.
