7:30pm         ARTHUR SMITH               Tickets from £17

Wendy Cope, one of the UK’s most enduringly popular poets, features in the afternoon.  Wendy is acclaimed for her wryly perceptive love poems and parodies.  Since her highly acclaimed poetry collection Making Cocoa For Kingsley Amis in 1986, Wendy has been at the forefront of the British poetry scene.

Wit, raconteur, playwright, grumpy old man and Leonard Cohen fan – Arthur Smith is one of a kind. His career has built steadily from being part of the alternative scene in the Eighties, and he now describes himself as “semi-professional” comedian.   He describes himself as BBC Radio 4’s “bit of rough”. Support comes from writer,   Private Eye cartoonist and performer Mike Barfield.
