Poets & Players is back in the stunning South Gallery at The Whitworth, with three writers and three musicians for its first outing in 2019.

Freelance writer and former editor of Poetry London magazine, Colette Bryce is the author of four collections with Picador, including The Whole & Rain-domed Universe, which draws on her experience of growing up in Derry during the Troubles, received a Ewart-Biggs Award in memory of Seamus Heaney, and was shortlisted for the Forward and Costa prizes. Selected Poems came out in 2017 and won the Pigott Prize for poetry at Listowel 2018.

Joining Colette is Kit Fan, whose second collection, As Slow As Possible, is a Poetry Books Society Recommendation and was chosen by the Guardian as one of the 50 biggest books of autumn 2018, and Martin Kratz, whose first pamphlet, A Skeleton’s Progress, came out last year with Poetry Salzburg and whose poem ‘The Man Who Walked Through Walls’ was Highly Commended for the Forward Prize in 2014.

Music comes courtesy the Kell Wind Trio – flautist Alastair Roberts, clarinetist Geoffrey Smith and bassoon player Ian Harvey – who have gained a reputation for giving lively and informative concerts, from Baroque to the present day.

There will be a morning poetry workshop with Colette Bryce starting at 10.30am. The fee is £20, and you must book in advance – please email davidborrott@btinternet.com for more information and to reserve your place.

This event start at 2.30pm.
