He’s a poet with a bike who’s not afraid to use it. He’s cycling 700 miles around the country, raising money for counselling and homeless charities at gigs along the way. All in memory of his friend, Lizzie Lee, who passed away last year. Expect a mix of the serious and the silly, the personal and the political.

If you had to put Kate in a box, I guess you would say ‘She is a performance poet and lyrical true life storyteller with a slight Brummy twang and hands that can’t keep still. But as she prefers not to be put in a box, think of her as a sharer of words, stories and all types of dreams.
