Ti Pi Tin will be taking part in this year’s Stoke Newington Literary Festival. Join us on Saturday, 8 June at 2.00 pm for a panel talk with people who fuse literature with other forms of art. And, after performing their show at White Rabbit at 4.00 pm, many of the New Libertines will be hightailing it straight across town to give impromptu readings, booksignings, and poetic performance here at 5.30 pm, and may well pick up several of Stoke Newington’s other poets along the way.
