If you think the class system isn’t alive and well in 21st Century Britain, you haven’t been paying attention. The Real Story teams up with Dead Ink Books for an evening celebrating Know Your Place: Essays on the Working Class by the Working Class, a new anthology of essays in which a broad slate of voices consider the working class experience wreference to art, representation, sexuality, employment, gender and literature.

Performing their essays are Kit de Waal, author of the bestselling, acclaimed novel My Name is Leon; poet and MMU lecturer Andrew McMillan, author of the multi-award winning debut collection, Physical; Gena-mour Barrett, a BuzzFeed journalist who hosts the podcast Well, Blactually and has been featured on BBC Radio; and Abondance Matanda, who has published four handmade books including Bare Fucker1es, and was featured in Dazed & Confused as one of ‘the new generation of poets mastering DIY culture.’ Hosted by The Real Story’s Kate Feld.

Tickets (£7/£5 concessions) available now from quay.it/cr or by phone on 0843 208 0500 (calls cost 7p/minute including connection charges).
