Tottering State: A Celebration of Lee Harwood and Tom Raworth

Join us for an evening of poetry from the edges as four of the UK's most original poets pay tribute to the loss of Lee Harwood and Tom Raworth. Harwood and Raworth were trailblazers for the English avant-garde for over fifty years, leaving behind them an unparalleled legacy of invention and lyricism. This celebration features readings of their work as well as the work of the performing poets: Chris McCabe, MacGillivray, Iain Sinclair and Jeremy Reed with The Ginger Light.

Thursday 28th June
