Nathan Jones at London Word Festival last year
Following on from their nuptials late last year they're proceeding through the church ceremonials and baptism is on the menu this time. Fear no babies but baptisms of fire, total immersion, the head of John the Baptist and the opportunity to perform your own ritual dousings with BYO booze as is the tradition of St Leonard's.
Throwing music, poetics and performance into the mix there's a lot to take in, not least visual stimulation courtesy of Mercy's artists in residence. A few things to look out for are The Wave Machines co-hosting with Mercy creative director, Nathan Jones, Sarah Nicholls experimenting with a piano, vocal pugilism from David J and the marvellous Homework textual twister Ross Sutherland collaborating with musician Eugene McGuinness directing a musical of his life where he's played by a woman.
