Being A Man

  • Things to do
0 Love It

A three-day festival of talks, screenings, music and performances that's new to the Southbank this year. Over 250 men took part in 'think-ins' to discuss what it means to be a man in this day and age: from the decrease in traditional male jobs and stress in the city to gang culture and young male offenders. Highlights include a live show on Sunday at 7.30pm with the highly inciteful MC/poet and founder of the Hip Hop Shakespeare Company, Akala and Barking's blokey bard and urban balladeer Billy Bragg. Plus presentations from the humorous Huddersfield poet Simon Armitage and Turner Prize-winning artists Grayson Perry (Fri, 7.30pm). Visit for a breakdown of events over the weekend.
