Word is out! We’re going on tour!

Well, it’s not really a tour – more a national showcase for the Polari Prize.

Funded by those nice people at Arts Council England, the Polari Prize National Showcase kicks off this month and continues until November 2024.

There’ll be 25 dates in total, taking place all across the UK.

We’ll be showcasing Polari Prize winners past, present and future – starting with our current winners and writers shortlisted for this year’s awards.

More dates will be announced soon, but here’s what we have lined up in the coming weeks.

With Heleana Blackwell, Sophia Blackwell and Paul Burston.

With Julia Armfield, Livia Alour and Jon Ransom.

With Jack Parlett, Barbara Brownskirt, Adam Lowe and Joelle Taylor.

With Tom Crewe, Golnoosh Nour and Sophie Ward.

With Fiona Mozley, Chitra Ramaswamy and Shane Strachan.

With 2022 prize winners Joelle Taylor and Adam Zmith, and live music from Kit Green.

Plus we’ll be announcing this year’s Polari Prize winners.
