Entry: Free but booking is advised
MLF and Poets & Players are delighted to present George Szirtes. A poet of ‘immense versatility and virtuosity when it comes to form, but also a tireless sympathy that dwells clear-sightedly on shocks, traumas and hard-won renewals from a century of migration and massacre’ (Boyd Tonkin), he is the winner of multiple major British and international prizes.
He will be joined by the award-winning poet and playwright Caroline Bird, whose first collection of poetry was published when she was 15, and whose fourth was described by Simon Armitage as ‘spring-loaded, funny, sad and deadly’. Music will be played by ANDCHUCK, a dynamic young jazz quartet consisting of Caitlin Laing on sax, guitarist Jack March, bassist Tom Chapman and drummer Gabriel Alexander.
