What's on Festival Programme Linda France presents Nine from the North: A Celebration of Women Poets Join poet Linda France for an exciting ensemble evening of poetry with Anna Woodford, Anne Ryland, Christy Ducker, Cynthia Fuller, Ellen Phethean, Linda Anderson, Lisa Matthews and Pippa Little. In various incarnations, the group have been meeting since 2004 in Newcastle to workshop new poems-in-progress and are all widely published and prize-winning writers. Their different voices come together to tell poems of the body, the heart and the untrammelled imagination, each inflected with the strong beauty of the North. A rare treat of a gathering. Tickets include a glass of wine. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Anna Woodford is no longer able to join the exciting line up. Book now Booking for this event has now closed.
