As part of Chapel FM's contribution to Leeds Lit Fest, we present an evening dedicated to women and words. This live broadcast event runs in two parts. You are welcome to join us in the studio audience for one or both parts in the beautiful Chapel FM Radio Theatre...


In celebration of International Women’s Day, five women talk about the physical and metaphorical voice: losing it, finding it, using it. With Becky Cherriman (writer/performer), Louise Gibbs (singer), Khadijah Ibrahiim (poet/theatre maker), and Jane Oakshott (performance coach). Chaired by Peg Alexander.

WORDY WOMEN. 8.00 – 9.30pm. 

A panoply of female poets perform their work upstairs in Chapel FM’s atmospheric radio theatre, hosted by Khadijah Ibrahim; featuring Helen Burke, Becky Cherriman, Jane Kite, and Gaia Holmes.
