Ledbury Poetry Festival 1-10 July 2005


I am honoured to have been asked to read at the Ledbury Festival this year.

It really is one of the best (some would say) the best festivals of its kind, and the roster of poets who appear is impressive. This year the line-up features Alan Brownjohn (recently at our Oxfam event), Galway Kinnel, Penelope Shuttle, Tamar Yoseloff (to read for Oxfam in August) and Simon Armitage, among many others.

I'll be reading on Saturday, July 9, at Burgage Hall, from 10:15 am-11:30 am (tickets £6.50) with the Sri Lankan poet Pireeni Sundaralingam.

Hope to see you there.
