The Seamus Heaney Centre Presents... HELP!

40m Poetry, Literature, Music 2020

As a result of their regular nights in the Crescent Arts Centre being put on hold, the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s took the show online in May 2020 for a special virtual get-together, with special guests Joe Holtaway and Robyn Hitchcock.

Featuring poetry, prose, and song from far-flung Fellows and friends, joining us from New York, Trinidad, Nashville, and even east Belfast. HELP! is hosted by Glenn Patterson. The lineup features Nick Laird, Lucy Caldwell, Vahni Capildeo, Susannah Dickey, Leontia Flynn and Stephen Sexton.

With a special contribution from Robyn Hitchock, and the premiere of a short film and original song by Joe Holtaway, in collaboration with Southwark Day Care Centre for Asylum Seekers and ConsciousFilmCo.
