Words Weekend 2019
Roisin Crowley Linton: Teenage Kicks
Stamptown Newcomer Award winner 2018, Roisin Crowley Linton returns to her hometown with her signature blend of achingly honest poetry, side-splitting stand-up and personal storytelling. Working with teenagers can be strange when you work at a youth club by day and perform comedy, poetry and burlesque by night.
This time we’re talking about growing up in Newcastle, taking ownership of our bodies and how the kids are alright.
“Roisin Crowley Linton is the voice that we all need to hear… this show flawless” RadioHaHa ***** FIVE STARS
As everyone deserves equal access to entertainment, every event in Words Weekend will be accessible. In addition to the gold standard access provision at Sage Gateshead, all events will be BSL interpreted and there will be a roaming interpreter facilitating conversations throughout the venue.
Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.
We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members, some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces. Please remember that not all disabilities or health conditions are visible. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]
