I’m delighted to announce some great events coming up at the Poetry Centre. The first is an evening of A E Housman, with a talk by Julian Hunt of the Housman Society, on February 3rd, 6-8pm. There will also be readings of some of his poems. You can book for the event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/an-evening-of-ae-housman-tickets-29780496266
I’m very excited that we have the poet Alison Brackenbury coming to give a reading on March 31st, 6-8pm. Alison is a wonderful poet whose recent book Skies has (deservedly, in my opinion) been very well received, and her reading, with a short talk about poetry and folk music, promises to be a great experience.

On April 7th at 1pm I’m giving a lecture on the poetry of Elizabeth Siddall (the topic of my forthcoming book); this is free to BMI members or £3 on the door.
And finally, on June 16th, 6-8pm, we are holding an evening of Birmingham City University Poets. Come along, have some wine and relax whilst listening to poetry! There’s no booking for this but it would be helpful if you could let me know if you’re coming.
