Performance poet, social commentator and chef Miles Chambers is the first official Bristol poet laureate. He grew up in Trowbridge in Wiltshire and moved to Bristol 20 years ago to study graphic design at the University of the West of England. He has already read a number of poems in his official capacity with more to come. You can catch him behind the stoves at Agnes Spencer’s Amazing Jamaican Cuisine stall at the Tobacco Factory market, Temple Quay market and Love Food Festival; and behind the mike on his Ujima Radio show, Lyrically Minded.
