E18: Simon Armitage and ‘An Evening of Poetry’
Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond DL10 4DW; 7.30pm; £20 from www.georgiantheatreroyal.co.uk; Bar; Bookstall; Disabled access
We are pleased to announce this special ‘Encore Author Event. Simon Armitage, the UK Poet Laureate, will be ‘on stage’ at the Georgian Theatre Royal, for a reading of his work. It’s a real privilege, during Richmond’s 950th celebrations, to be regaled by this ever-observant and wonderfully accessible poet who, as a bonus of birth, happens to be a Yorkshireman.
Not put off by his failure at age 10 to have his first poem displayed in his classroom, Simon has gone on to pen around 30 books, but then who’s counting? Hope you can join us.
