Poet Linton Kwesi Johnson comes to Lancaster Arts at the city’s university April 20, followed by double Olivier Award-winning choreographer Russell Maliphant's latest show, Vortex, April 27–28.

Kwesi Johnson will be joined in conversation by Jamaican-born author Jacqueline Crooks to discuss his new book Time Come, released just a week earlier, and perform some of his work.

The Russell Maliphant Dance Company returns to Lancaster Arts for the first time since 2019 with a reinterpretation of the art and process of abstract painter Jackson Pollock.
