About the event

Poetry reading by Ian Duhig and Katharine Towers. Ian Duhig's poetry sits at the intersection of the literary and folk traditions. Wonderfully obscure knowledge rubs shoulders with visceral humour and traditional ballads. His sixth collection, Pandorama, delves into the corners of multi-cultural Britain to give us songs from football grounds, jihadist training grounds and work-camps of itinerant navies, recounted with wit and compassion. Tickets: £7/£8 on door. For more information or to book visit: www.wordsworth.org.uk/events or call: 015394 35544.
