Sun 30 Jul, The Gallery, Stamford Arts Centre poetry
Award-winning Wendy Cope is a poet with a truly popular following (Radio 4's Poetry Please listeners voted her their No1 choice for Poet Laureate). Her often comical poetry shows a keen eye for the everyday aspects of English life, especially of intimate relationships.
A completely fresh and entertaining setting for a poetry reading from the quiet phenomenon who has proved quality can be popular! The idea of a slightly seditious but seriously good ironic moan about life’s little irritations over a bickie and a cuppa with Wendy has proved unfailingly popular. Wendy reads a hilariously dissatisfied and ironic set either side of the tea….with a question and answer session to round off the event, plus an ever popular after-show book signing.
