Event description

Description

Welcome to our festival finale event! Poet extraordinaire and presenter of BBC Radio 3’s weekly The Verb, Ian McMillan, makes a welcome return to Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival, this time appearing alongside his son, multi-award winning poet, Andrew McMillan. Collaborating on a project for the first time, Ian and Andrew have been commissioned by the festival to write two brand new poems, set to music by Manchester-based composer, Michael Betteridge, and sung this evening by local choirs, Cantare and The Sunday Boys. This unique event will also feature father and son reading from their own work, plus their choice of songs based on the works of other favourite poets, performed by the choirs.
