A Jeremy Corbyn-themed night will be held in Kentish Town tonight, with Brian Eno, Owen Jones, Michael Rosen and Mark Steel among those set to appear.

The night of music, poetry and speeches will be held at the Kentish Town Forum.

A statement on the venue’s website said: “Since Jeremy Corbyn put his name into the hat to become the next Labour Party leader he has visited dozens of towns and cities across the country attracting unprecedented numbers of people to turn out to political meetings.

“This has shaken up the political establishment and given hope to thousands and thousands of hitherto disaffected people.”

The full line-up for the night includes Pauline Black, Jeremy Hardy, Logic, Francesca Martinez, Sara Pascoe, Grace Petrie, Michael Rosen and Mark Steel.

Guest speakers include Brian Eno and Owen Jones.

But there’s no guarantee the man of the moment, who was named Labour Party leader on Saturday, will be there.

The venue said: “Due to the changing nature of Jeremy’s commitments the promoters of the event cannot guarantee Jeremy Corbyn’s attendance at the event.”
