A new "mini festival" is set to take place in Brighton at the end of the month, featuring legendary punk poet John Cooper Clarke.
Wordsmith hopes to "celebrate the inspiring architects of text and spoken word" and will also feature American songwriter Diane Cluck and "a pocket sized Henry V".
Emerging in the late 1970s as "the poet laureate of punk", Cooper Clarke’s sharp edged verse earned him opening slots for the The Sex Pistols and the Buzzcocks.
The festival will run from Sunday, October 28th, to November 4th.
