We can reveal who’ll be wowing with words, tantalising with talks, and letting you listen to their literary tales… Here’s the official Poetry, Literature and Talks line-up!
We have the original ‘punk-poet’, Dr John Cooper Clarke, ready to rock the gardens with his live, uncensored poetry! Kate Adie, former chief news correspondent for the BBC, will divulge fascinating tales from her life and work. World-class performance storyteller Ben Haggarty‘s Late Night Tales for Adults should not be missed. Prepare for an epic battle of words, comedians v. poets in Stand Up & Slam! And for something that’s out of this world, Dr Simon Foster’s Rocket Science (yes, he’s a real life rocket scientist!) explores the skies above us.
There’s also an array of literary workshops on offer, so allow yourself to get creative and let your words wander free…
