Poet in da Corner

This coming of age story by Debris Stevenson was inspired by Dizzee Rascal’s seminal album.

In a strict Mormon house somewhere on the outskirts of London; between East London and Essex, a girl is given Dizzee Rascal’s ground-breaking grime album – Boy in da Corner.

Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change – from feeling muted by dyslexia to spitting the power of her words, from being conflicted about her sexuality to discovering the capability to explore and feeling alone to being given the greatest gift by her best friend.

Debris Stevenson is a young poet, lyricist and dancer who has performed her unique work everywhere from BBC Radio 3’s The Verb to the Roundhouse.

It was in 2010, living and working in Los Angeles, that she discovered her talent for artistic portraits and having been nurtured by the life of the international art world and memories of the Old Dutch Masters, Micky Hoogendijk now takes the beholder on a journey into her universe.

Supper Talk: The Social History of the Pub

Head to the Chelsea Physic Garden for the latest in their Supper Talk series; the social history of the pub. Join James Kneale on 6 September for a fascinating insight into the development of the drinking culture.

It could be argued that Britain’s relationship with drink mirrors the evolution of the nation and is interwoven with themes from colonial and imperial history, industrialisation and social change. Follow a brief overview of this history, Kneale will then concentrate his talk on the changing fortunes of the pub from the end of the  18th Century through to mid-20th Century and examine the reasons for its evolution, uses, character and form. He will take you through the different places that we recognise today – gin shops, gin palaces, beer houses, ‘jerries’ and ‘she beens’, improved pubs and teetollers pubs, roadhouses, flash city taverns and bucolic country inns.

Tickets cost £17 which include Garden entry and a glass of wine. Supper tickets can be bought separately at an additional £17. Both tickets can be bought here.

The talk commences at 7pm and sittings for supper start at 5.45pm or 8pm.
