We’re going back to Blighty in June to see friends and family and to buy copious amounts of the things you can’t get in Ireland – notably Wensleydale cheese and corned beef. I’ve managed to set up some poetry gigs to read (mostly) from ‘Following Teisa’ while we are there, so here are the details.
Sunday 12th June. Reading with guest poet Stephen Moran – host Pauline Sewards.Torriano Meeting House, 99 Torriano Avenue. London NW5 2RX, 7.30pm
Monday 13th June. The Director’s Cut! The festival version! Thanks to the great Bob Beagrie, we are hosting a performance of the WHOLE BOOK with six voices joining me in a one-off, never-to-be-repeated event. “@CrossingtheTees presents a stunning cabaret evening on Mon 13/06 in the gorgeous surroundings of the reference library, including the launch of my collection Following Teisa. Multiple performers will play the many voices of the river Tees.” Booking details here!
Thursday 16th June I will be reading some extracts from the book as part of the regular open mic night at The Old Well pub, 21 The Bank, Barnard Castle, from 8pm.
Saturday 18th June. Words on the Wall, at the County Hotel, Hexham, doors open 2.30pm for a 3pm start. Reading with Sarah Wimbush and Rowan McCabe. Lots to like!
Tuesday 21st June Ouse Muse, at the Eagle Bookshop, 16-20 St Peter’s Street, Bedford, MK40 2NN 7.45pm.
I’m so looking forward to these readings – I would love to see you there!
