Roger McGough – Safety in Numbers

July 3 @ 19:30

£17.50
Roger McGough

Staycations, adultery in lockdown, ghosts and gamblers, as well as playful advice to up and coming poets. (Don’t do it!)

With the gift of many tongues, playful, surreal and tender, McGough, ‘a trickster you can trust’ reveals the telling moments of our lives.

President of the Poetry Society, he has been honoured with a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool.

After Lily The Pink, the Aintree Iron, Scaffold, GRIMMS, The Mersey Sound with Adrian Henri & Brian Patten and his Molière adaptations with English Touring Theatre, Roger presents the long-running Poetry Please.

The beat goes on.
