One of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation, Benjamin Clementine delivers deeply personal songs of shattering power and searing emotional honesty. Clementine won the Mercury Prize in 2015 with his beautiful debut album At Least For Now.

His poetic songs, honest and inquisitive in style, frequently question the nature of the society we live in today. Comparisons have been made with Nina Simone, Anohni and Edith Piaf, but with his impassioned and stirring tenor, Clementine orbits a musical sphere that is entirely his own.

Part of the International Festival and British Council season Spirit of '47

The advertised time is approximately when the performance will start. Doors will open at least 30 mins prior to this time. 

We are delighted that BBC Arts Digital collaborated with us, making many of the events from Spirit of ’47 available live and on demand to a global audience online. Visit BBC Arts Digital for more information.

Clementine takes on an otherworldly majesty, leaving the audience hypnotised by an utterly transfixing talent
