Half Hour Hits

Plans are underway to develop a programme of site-specific productions that are each half an hour long. The programme will echo the first ever series of LLL events, presented in 1995. We aim to combine new work by emerging and established writers with contemporary revisitings of modernist texts, such as T.S. Eliot's Sweeney Agonistes.

Penned Up 2

Penned Up at Erlestoke, 6th - 16th March, 2017

LLL recently ran a second festival in a prison, at HMP Erlestoke in Wiltshire. Aiming to support rehabilitation and offer inspiration, the festival's visiting artists included Billy Bragg, Kit de Waal, Erwin James, Noel "Razor" Smith, Dreda Say Mitchell, Mr Gee and a performance of Diving into the Wreck, a multimedia production developed by poet Maggie Sawkins and LLL's Artistic Director Mark C. Hewitt, in which addicts in recovery tell their own story. Prisoners were involved in a management committee that oversaw all aspects of the festival.
