About the event

Roger McGough at the Edinburgh Festival 25-26 August. A new book of poems by Roger McGough is always an event and "As Far As I Know" is truly a cause for celebration. Hilarious and surreal, he is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough's characteristic wit and wordplay too. Lily The Pink, the Aintree Iron, Scaffold, GRIMMS, The Mersey Sound with Adrian Henri & Brian Patten and presenter of the long-running Poetry Please. The beat goes on. Followed by book signing. Tickets £10/£8. 2nd performance on 26 August is also at 12pm. For more information visit:
