Belgrade Theatre, Belgrade Square, Corporation St, Coventry, West Midlands, United Kingdom
BBC Contains Strong Language is the BBC's poetry and spoken word festival. This is a UK City of Culture event. BBC CSL is working in collaboration with Coventry City of Culture Trust, Writing West Midlands, Nine Arches Press and British Council.
The event will be based during the weekend at The Belgrade Theatre for BBC Broadcast purposes. Events will be held indoors at locations such as The Empire and Fargo Village, and outdoors in places such as Millenium Place and by the Sherbourne River. We are working with local writers and international artists such as poets and animators in Southern Africa for the British Council.
There will be lots of BBC live recordings taking place which will be free but ticketed for audiences. In the run up to the festival we will be offering lots of free community events working with BBC national and local radio.
