“Polari is a unique mix of voices that provokes the strongest responses from its audience – love, laughter, tears, but most of all, thought” – Val McDermid

A hugely enjoyable evening of performance, and a Festival favourite, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Host Paul Burston presents the award-winning LGBT event with universal appeal. Eclectic, entertaining and often very funny – a not-to-be-missed event.

This year’s performers:

Paul Burston – Our Polari host, the award-winning journalist and novelist, reads from his critically acclaimed chilling domestic noir The Black Path.

David McAlmont – Gifted vocalist songwriter and essayist, best known for his collaboration with Bernard Butler on the hit single Yes, McAlmont has also worked with Courtney Pine and film score composers Craig Armstrong and David Arnold.

VG Lee – Crazy hat lady, stand-up comedian and award-winning author of short stories and five novels, including Diary of a Provincial Lesbian and her latest, Mr Oliver’s Object of Desire.

Dean Wilson – Described by The Guardian as “Every bit as brilliant as Larkin, but a million times funnier”, the self-styled “Fourth Best Poet in Hull” has a new poetry collection Sometimes I’m So Happy I’m Not Safe on the Streets.

Sarah Stovell – Her debut psychological thriller, Exquisite, is set in the Lake District, and was called “the book of the summer” by the Sunday Times. Her next book, The Visit, will be out in June 2018. She lives in Northumberland.

Following the performance, we will be playing a few tunes, so please stay on for a boogie and a beer!
