- Uprising With Alex Wheatle
"Marking the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots, award winning author Alex Wheatle MBE presents his moving autobiographical story of how he became a writer.
Alex takes audiences on a journey through Britain in the 1980s: from the brutality of children's homes to life on the 'Frontline' in riot-torn Brixton and sharing a prison cell with a fierce Rasta-man. A journey punctuated by the muscular singing of lyrics that made Alex the famous 'Yardman Irie' of the Brixton club scene.
Inspired by his best-selling novel, Brixton Rock and East of Acre Lane, Alex Wheatle's performance is a gem. Alex's latest novel Brenton Brown, the eagerly awaited follow up to Brixton Rock, is published in June 2011."
