ArtfulScribe Presents: Luke Wright at MAST Mayflower Studios. 

Whether he’s opening for the Libertines or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is adept at taking poetry places it doesn’t normally go.

Winner of the Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Performer 2021 and John Cooper Clarke’s regular warm-up guy, Luke writes poems that are tender, riotous, caustic and romantic then delivers them with the ferocity and panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.

He’s written four poetry collections and his plays have been published as epic poems by Penned in the Margins, his latest titled, ‘The Feel-Good Movie Of The Year’.

There will be a short open mic set before Luke Wright performs with 5 slots available for sign up, on the day. Sign up starts from 6:30pm in MAST Mayflower Studios Café/Bar Area. The open mic will start at 7:00pm and Luke will go on at 7:30pm.
