Michael Donaghy was born in 1954 in the Bronx, New York. He has lived in Britain since 1985. His most recent collections of poetry are Dances Learned Last Night (Poems 1975-1995) and Conjure, both published by Picador. His numerous awards include the Whitbread Prize for Poetry, the Geoffrey Faber Prize, and the Forward Prize. He is an outstanding performer and poet.

Roy Fisher was born in Handsworth, Birmingham in 1930, but his style shows the influence of the Black Mountain School, emanating from the college in North Carolina in the early 1950's. Despite this American influence, Roy Fisher's poetry retains an essential English quality drawing upon the landscape he knows so well. Helen Dunmore has said of Fisher’s wonderfully witty and anarchic poetry 'A poet of cities in growth and in dereliction His knowledge of urban landscape is formidable, and expressed with an originality of touch which makes these poems, at their best, revelatory. These are fine investigative poems'

Live jazz from local musicians.
