Speakeasy last night was a wonderful thing. Here’s some dates for your poetry calendar:
Saturday 29th: ‘When Norman Met Percy’ – see the post of that name. Talk & readings at Maryport. Excellent live list of poets. And me.
Saturday 6th October: ‘Poetry Breakfast’ at Tullie House with Malcolm Carson. See the Borderlines Festival Programme for details. This is always an excellent event. And me.
Saturday 6th October: the launch of the excellent Cumbrian poetry anthology by Handstand Press at Cakes and Ale. See the Borderlines Festival Programme for details. I am the mc!
Thursday 1st November: poetry evening at Brantwood hosted by Geraldine Green. This has been an excellent event for three years running.
Wednesday 7th November: ‘Freiraum’ event at Foxes Café. Filmed and beamed across Europe! I will be reading ‘Unthanks’ and performing a piece of music with John Chambers and Nicci Read; I am supplying the ‘noise’ – see the picture.
