Life is Sad and Beautiful – an evening with Hussain Manawer

This event is ending soon! Last chance to secure tickets!

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week we will be joined by The Original Mummy’s Boy, Hussain Manawer, to celebrate the publication of his debut poetry collection Life is Sad and Beautiful. The evening will feature live performances of poetry from Hussain, followed by discussion of its themes with ITV’s Ben Shephard.

Hussain’s debut poetry collection invites reader on his journey through depression and grief and out the other side to a better place. Hussain is a poet and mental health campaigner who has channelled his grief at the loss of his mother into this heartbreaking and lyrical volume that consoles as much as it challenges.
