An Evening with Ian McMillan: The Bard of Yorkshire
Wednesday, 10th October 2018
Ian McMillan – a poet with a mission to perform his poetry in every local hall in Britain, comes to Ropetackle Arts Centre. One of the UK’s best known contemporary poets, Ian presents The Verb every week on BBC R3 and he’s a regular on television and radio shows.
Reading and talking about his latest collection of poems ‘To fold the Evening Star’, he will draw fresh inspiration from his visit to Shoreham-by-Sea, where he will be entertaining school children earlier in the day. Provocative, reflective, humorous, Ian’s poetry provides a subversive commentary on our everyday life and times.
