Curiosity and Collaboration Unlock Creativity

Unlock you imagination at the Southbank Centre during its Literature and Spoken Word Festival, which runs from the 2nd April - 6th August.

Southbank has welcomed some of the world's finest writers to host readings from the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the complete collection of Shakespearian sonnets to celebrate the playwright and poet's four hundred and fiftieth birthday. There wll also be a production The Rape of Lucrece, performed by the Royal Shakespeare company. This politically and sexually charged tragedy is one of Shakespeare's rarely performed plays.

Other highlights include Creativity and Collaboration, in which a writer, a surgeon, and musicians discuss what can be achieved by working together.On World Book Night, The Wellcome Book Prize judges will discuss The Art of Curiosty, by exploring contemporary books about science and medicine. And if you have a story inside you that is bursting to get out, go to StorySLAM: Live and impress the judges with a five-minute story on the theme 'Elemental'.
