Polis Loizou’s Love Island


12:45-13:45 First Word
Saturday 18 June

Life feels a bit like a movie when you grow up on The Island of Love.

Especially when there is a vendetta being waged around you, brides are kidnapped from their homes under cover of night, and you find you have suspiciously famous ancestors.

This is the Cyprus of Polis Loizou childhood, and he weaves it into an hour of funny, surprising, and unforgettable storytelling.
