Glamorgan: Looking Over The Hill with Ian McMillan

Something for the more mature ....

Mon 12 May 08
St Donats Arts Centre
Vale of Glamorgan
Tickets £4 / £3

Ian McMillan is one of the UK’s best known contemporary poets and a performer of great wit and charm. This special Book Club event is the culmination of ‘Looking Over The Hill’ as part of Gwanwyn – the Wales festival of arts and creativity for older people. A variety of groups have taken part by writing short pieces of poetry or prose on the subject of the present and the future. Everyone is welcome to this informal Book Club event featuring Ian’s selection of the pieces alongside performances of his work that can be moving, touching, provocative and funny – and, of course, a chance to meet Ian, ask questions and get your books signed over tea and cake. "In his range, prodigious northern myth-making, indefatigable good humour and real status as a community poet, he is unique." Peter Forbes. "With McMillan, you feel a draught coming from the blast of fresh air blowing through the dusty cobwebs that festoon most literary programmes." The Observer. 2pm at St Donats Arts Centre. Ticket includes free tea and cake. For further details and tickets contact / 01446 799100. .
