Ripon Poetry Festival: An evening of Poetry with Ian McMillan @ 7.30pm

Ian McMillan has been a castaway on Desert Island Discs, a resident poet for Barnsley FC, English National Opera and Humberside Police.

He has been described as 'a national treasure' (Andy Kershaw), 'a genius' (Yorkshire Post) and 'one of today’s greatest poetry performers' (Carol Ann Duffy).

The Poetry Festival is delighted to welcome the Bard of Barnsley to Ripon as he reads from his new hilarious collection, To Fold the Evening Star.

With music by Joe Christie.
