Preview: Turning Point Festival @ The Roundhouse

turningpoint.jpg Turning Point Festival is 3 days of live music, dance, circus, comedy, cabaret and theatre put together by a creative team all under the age of 25.

Feeling our collective age a bit we've barely started to absorb what's going on Friday and Saturday although we're just about 'hip' enough to know who Saturday's headline acts are - Ms Dynamite(eehee), Roll Deep and Rob Da Bank. However, demonstrating impeccable taste the Turning Point team have called on our friends at the London Word Festival to curate a stage on Sunday presenting a top bill of spoken word stuff.

For a day ticket at £8 there's another chance to see Word Festival shows Nathan Penlington's 'Uri and Me' (now officially endorsed by Mr Geller himself, having seen the show from the front row at the Camden Fringe) and Terry Saunders' 'Six and a Half Loves'. Poems born of south London come from Laura Dockrill, Francesca Millican-Slater gives instructions for heartbreak and 'vocal gymnast' Hannah Silva works it out and 'Infinite Livez' turns computer games lyrical with the Ross '4 star' Sutherland, Tim 'arts hottie' Clare and Faber new poet Joe Dunthorne.

It may be organised by under 25s but everyone is welcome (to most of it - unless you're under 16 on the Friday). Book now.

Turning Point Festival is 17-19 September all over the Roundhouse, Chalk Farm.
