Heroes and poets head the third Being A Man Festival

From rapper Professor Green, who in recent documentaries has brought attention to a range of issues from homelessness to male suicide, to Sir Roger Moore, who reflects candidly on stepping into the shoes of the ultimate on-screen hero, 007, the third Being A Man (BAM) Festival at London’s Southbank Centre is playing host to those who illuminate the sense of male identity this year.

Other guests include the founding fathers of hip hop, The Last Poets alongside Ashley Walters; trailblazing solo artist and frontman of Bloc Party, Kele Okereke, as performers and visitors discuss what it means to be a hero, where that means challenging expectations, and the heroism it takes to embrace your true identity.

The Festival, supported by the Pureland Foundation, will be held at London’s Southbank Centre from Friday 25 November to Sunday 27 November
