Brewery Poets Reading

13 November 2015 |  Warehouse Café | 7.00 pm for 7.30

Three poets for this evening:

Guest reader:  Manchester poet David Borrott

Brewery Poets:  Kerry Darbishire and Barbara Hickson

Plus South Lakes Brass Ensemble. 

‘The South Lakes Brass Ensemble was formed in 2014 by Kim Moore, who has schemed, planned and plotted to set up a brass group in Cumbria that would systematically go about taking over the world.  It consists of two trumpets, one cornet, french horn, tenor horn, trombone and tuba.  In their real lives the musicians teach music, write poetry, manage food banks, go to school, run animal rescue centres or are busy retiring gracefully.  The group plays a variety of music and are looking forward to performing at Brewery Poets.’

David Borrott

David Borrott has an MA in Poetry from Manchester Metropolitan University.  His pamphlet Porthole was published in June 2015 by Smith/Doorstop.  He lives in Lancashire with his partner and their three sons.

Kerry Darbishire

Kerry lives and writes in Cumbria, surrounded by fields and birdsong.  Kerry’s first collection A Lift of Wings was published by Indigo Dreams in 2014.  She has been widely published in magazines and anthologies. 

Barbara Hickson

Barbara Hickson  lives on the eastern edge of Lancaster overlooking the Bowland Fells which provide inspiration for much of her poetry.  Her work has been published in several magazines and on-line journals.
