An exciting literary tour will host its final performance in Locking Castle this week.

The regional Word On Tour comes to a close with an event on Wednesday at The Campus, in Highlands Lane, from 7-9pm.

Nikesh Shukla will team up with performance poet Byron Vincent.

Nikesh is a Costa prize-shortlisted author for his novel Coconut Unlimited.

He is also editor of The Good Journal, a quarterly collection of writings by people of colour.

Byron is a writer, performer and radio broadcaster who writes movingly of coping with bipolar disorder and advocates for a kinder mental health service through his poetic and funny writing.

Together they will talk about their life and careers, read and perform some of their works and provide an evening of wit and wisdom.

The event is part of Word On Tour, which has taken place this summer.

Tickets, priced £5, are available on or from The Campus.
