 Primadonna Prize – Live

Primadonna presents: the Primadonna Prize award, LIVE, featuring Lenny Henry in conversation with Kit de Waal, plus live comedy, readings, poetry and more, with compere Sandi Toksvig.

Join the Primadonnas and some very special guests on Thursday 31 March for an evening of literature, laughter and much more, culminating in the awarding of this year’s Primadonna Prize.

  • Settle in as Sandi Toksvig takes the helm for the evening.
  • Listen to Lenny and Kit discuss the BBC TV adaptation of My Name Is Leon.
  • Stay in your seats for spoken word, poetry and drama performances plus side-splitting stand up.
  • And find out who’s won themselves a new career as an author, as we award this year’s Prize.

All this for just £15 (£10 concessions), plus a Primadonna-curated Waterstones bookshop and bar.

Tickets available via or from Conway Hall’s website.

The Primadonna Prize is for unsigned and unrepresented new writing talent. It was established to open up access to the publishing industry, and is judged anonymously and without regard to grammar or spelling: a first for a literary prize. This event is a fundraiser for Primadonna Festival CIC, to help stage the 2022 festival and associated events.
