Back for its first outing of 2017, Poets & Players welcomes multi-award-winning poet Ian Duhig to Whitworth Art Gallery for a sold-out workshop followed by a performance overlooking the park. A winner of the Forward Best Poem Prize and twice winner of the National Poetry Competition, Ian’s seventh book The Blind Roadmaker is a PBS Recommendation and was shortlisted for the 2016 Roehampton Prize, the Forward Best Collection Prize and the TS Eliot Prize.

Also reading is Faber New Poets programme graduate Fiona Benson, an Eric Gregory Award and Seamus Heaney Prize winner for her first collection, Bright Travellers. Leeds-based writer, workshop leader and performer Becky Cherriman’s first poetry pamphlet Echolocation and first collection Empires of Clay were published in 2016 by Mother’s Milk and Cinnamon Press respectively. The musical component of Poets & Players is performed by P&P founder and sound technician Chris Davies, Katy-Anne Bellis, co-founder of Headstrung, and pianist Henry Botham.
