This month we are joined by guest poet:

Chris Tutton

Guest poet Chris Tutton will read from his latest anthology and then lead a poetry writing workshop focussing on the links between poetry and art. For more than twenty years Chris Tutton's books, performances and workshops have beguiled, amused, entertained and educated.

Chris has performed his idiosyncratic blend of ravishing linguistic dexterity and intelligent humour throughout the UK to great acclaim, in venues as diverse as the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith and St Peter's Church, Oundle. He has often been seen and heard on national television and radio and is a regular guest at many major literary festivals.
