Lyrical Mehfil

29 Jun 2024

19:30 - 22:00

The Alhambra Theatre

Join us for our annual celebration of lyrical poetry at this year’s edition of the ever-popular Lyrical Mehfil.  

Mehfils are traditional gatherings of courtly entertainment performed for small audiences in the homes and palaces of South Asian nobility, and the assembly of talent at this event is fit for a king.   

This year, a dazzling line-up of poets reflecting some of the most innovative international voices will descend on Bradford, bringing a range of poetic styles and voices to this intimate event.  

This year’s line-up includes Afra Atiq joining us all the way from Dubai, Palestinian poet Atef Alshaer, Carlos Andrés Gómez from the USA, and Yorkshire’s own John Siddique, with more exciting names to be announced.
