Alison Brackenbury: Verve Poetry Festival

Sunday 17 Feb 2019, 18:00 to 19:30

The Old Rep Theatre
45 Station Street
B5 4DY


Our penultimate event at this year's Verve is our Sunday night poetry headliner, featuring readings and discussion with three poets we're thrilled to feature. Moniza Alvi is one of poetry's national treasures. Her collection At The Time Of Partition (2013) was enthralling and was followed in 2018 by the wonderful Blackbird, Bye Bye. Jacob Sam-la Rose is a force of nature in verse, but is so busy educating and working with young poets that he rarely gets to read himself. We are in for a treat! And what to say about Alison Brackenbury? Nine collections in, we are honoured that she has agreed to launch her 2019 Selected Poems, Gallop (Carcanet) at Verve!

Tickets are £6/£4 - see here for more information and booking.
