About the event

Daljit Nagra and George Szirtes

Daljit Nagra burst onto the poetry scene this year with the funny and poignant poems in his debut collection Look We Have Coming to Dover! The poems mix English, Punjabi and Punjabi-accented English and he performs them with poise and exuberance.
George Szirtes was born in Budapest and came to England as a refugee. He is a mature and accomplished T S Eliot prize-winning poet and translator, who peppers his readings with wry and illuminating comments on the characters and situations that inspire his poems.
