10 Oct: Chiddingly 

28 Nov: Lewes All Saints 

 LLL will be promoting two performances of a new one man show by John Agard as part of a preview tour in the autumn. 

In Roll Over Atlantic, Agard revists the notorious New World Enterprise of Christopher Columbus for a voyage in verse, performed against an evocative soundscape of Atlantic murmurings, with Agard variously taking on the voices of Columbus, The Atlantic Ocean and a subversive chorus of mosquitoes. The Lewes performance will be part of a weekend of events in late Novemeber celebrating LLL's 20th anniversary.
