For many men, their fathers define what it means to be a man. In this talk, we celebrate the men who made us who we are, and delve into the ideas of masculinity we inherited with speakers including Howard Cunnell (author of 'Fathers & Sons'), Kalwinder Sing Dhindsa (author of 'My Father & The Lost Legend of Pear Tear'), Scott Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly who created 'Fatherland'), Karl Hyde (musician, artist, founding member of Underworld and co-creator of 'Fatherland') and Yomi Sode (poet, father and former social worker). Chaired by actor and writer Ben Norris. In 2013 Ben became the UK All-Star Poetry Slam Champion and has since performed his spoken-word across the country. His debut solo show, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Family' won the 2015 IdeasTap Underbelly Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before touring the UK extensively. Tickets: Sunday Day Pass £20 (concessions £15)

Howard Cunnell has a Ph.D. from the University of London, and was previously a Leverhulme Fellow at the University of Sussex. He is the editor of Jack Kerouac's On the Road: The Original Scroll, which the New York Times described as ‘the living version for our time'. A former professional scuba-diving instructor, he lives in London with his wife and children.
