Celebrate the launch of Prince’s memoir The Beautiful Ones in true Book Slam and Penguin Live style this November.

Penguin Live are bringing together a collection of the best poets, performers, writers, musicians and artists to do their thing at our art deco theatre in honour of one of the most talented, beloved and original artists in history.

Hosted by Deanna Rodger and featuring Dan Piepenbring, editor of The Beautiful Ones who collaborated with Prince in his final days, when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world. Dan will be interviewed by Jacqueline Springer, a London-based broadcast music journalist, university lecturer, and event curator.

They will be joined by writer and performer Vanessa Kisuule and performance poet and writer Keith Jarrett. Guests will be treated to music from Eliza Legzdina PLUS tunes from a very special secret guest DJ. 

Part tribute, part gig, come and remember the greatest pop star of his era and a true artistic visionary at this unique live event.

The Beautiful Ones is the brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time—featuring never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death.

This event is for over 18s only. No refunds will be issued for under 18s.

**Every ticket or pair of tickets includes a copy of The Beautiful Ones RRP £25**
