The Derwent Poetry Festival
5th November 2016, 3:30pm - 4:30pm, Masson Mills, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire DE4 3PY
Delighted to have three poems included in this year's annual Templar poetry anthology, and also to be invited to read these, and others, at the Derwent Poetry Festival, where the anthology will be launched, alongside many of the new Templar pamphlets and collections. This year's festival is taking place between November 4-6th. It is held in Masson Mills, Matlock Bath in part of Richard Arkwright's original mill complex on the banks of the River Derwent. That's particularly apt for me, as I'm not only a Derbyshire girl, born and bred, but my Mum worked in one of the Masson Mills sister factories, in nearby Belper, as a young woman.
I will be reading on the Saturday afternoon.
