Enjoying her first headline tour as a musician, spoken-word trailblazer and 2014 Mercury Prize nominee Kate Tempest played to a packed crowd at The Fleece in Bristol. A regular visitor to the South West in recent years, Kate's performances have gained a reputation for wall-to-wall audiences, eager to experience her latest creative endeavours.

       After recent standing ovations at Bristol Old Vic for her Ted Hughes Poetry Award-winning show Brand New Ancients and a sold-out run of her play 'Hopelessly Devoted' at The Brewery Theatre, this latest performance (combining both the music from her album 'Everybody Down' and dips into her fiercely passionate spoken-word poetry) proved another great demonstration of her ability both as a writer and a performer.
