Next week at the Bernie Grant Centre composer and musician Juwon Ogungbe presents Ignatius Inspires - two nights of music and dance celebrating the extraordinary life and work of Ignatius Sancho (1729-1780).

Born on a slave ship, Ignatius Sancho went on to become a prolific writer and composer. He is the first black Briton known to have voted in a Parliamentary election and was the first African writer to have his work published in Britain.

Ignatius Inspires features rare recitals of Sancho's works by Juwon Ogungbe, alongside new compositions and dance pieces by Haringey young people and poetry by Ghanaian poet Nana Asaase.

Performances are at 7pm on Thursday 16th November and Friday 17th November.
