Description

An hour of Exquisite performance, Q&A and Book Signing with cult hero poet Paul Birtill.

'Makes me laugh and feel depressed at the same time and thats a rare gift' John Cooper Clarke

A kind of anti-Laureate who makes Philip Larkin sound life affirming' - Robert Lloyd Parry, Ham & High

'Serious and deadpan, and then suddenly, incongruously comic' Daniel Paddington, Time Out

Friday 13th is Punk and Alternative day at this years Anchor Gallery 'Show Me Your Birmingham' exhibition. An alternative arts and culture festival running for one week from October 9th - 15th 2017! Secure your seat for this event by buying your festival ticket here. Your ticket will also entitle you to unlimted access to all the weeks events, workshops, film screenings, music performances and more.

Paul Birtill has a fondness for Birmingham and singer Rachel Mayfield and will be visiting both as part of this years 'Show Me Your Birmingham' exhibition, October 13th 6-7pm.

Paul was born in Walton, Liverpool in 1960 and is half Irish. He moved to London in his early twenties and apart from a brief period in Glasgow has lived there ever since. He writes plays as well as verse, one of which was short listed for the Verity Bargate Award.

Paul Birtill's Collected Poems comprises his first three publications, Terifying Ordeal, So Far So Bad, and Rats Getting Close, plus New Poems.

Birtill covers his favourite themes of death, relationships and mental illness with his usual brand of dark humour and deep-veined irony - definitely not for the faint-hearted.

His Selection of Poems from Terrifying Ordeal, was first published by Hearing Eye in 1996 in the Torriano Meeting House Poetry Pamphlet series, and was reprinted in 1997. While the full collection is available, the original pamphlet is also still available.
