Old Brooms Know The Corners at The Malcolm X Centre 12th September

Monday 12th September 2022 from 19:00 — 21:00



Leonie is a typical British teenager, testing the boundaries and not worrying about the consequences – that is until she’s sent to live with her Grandma in the Caribbean. As her Grandma and the local aunties teach her to fall in line, they share stories from their own childhood, and lessons they’ve learnt along the way. Come along on the journey with Leonie as she learns that while new brooms may sweep clean, old brooms know the corners.

Join acta’s Malcolm X Elders for this intergenerational show. Expect childhood stories and life lessons from the elders mixed in with Anansi tales and the singing our Malcolm X Elders shows have become known for. This is a feelgood show for all the family.

For this special evening at the Malcolm X Centre, the show will be followed by a performance from Bristol Reggae Orchestra. 

Age guidance 5+: This show has not been designed with very young children in mind, but we believe it will engage those aged five and above.

This performance will begin promptly at 7pm
This performance takes place at The Malcolm X Centre, 141 City Rd, St Paul’s, Bristol BS2 8YH
