About this event

Jacob Polley won the 2016 T.S. Eliot prize for poetry for his fourth book of poems Jackself. A poet of the uncanny and the startlingly lyrical, Jacob’s work explores his rural upbringing, the forces of tradition and history, and the power of speech as it approaches song. Born in Cumbria, Jacob now lives and works in Newcastle.

Andrew Graves is a Nottingham poet who regularly performs his work throughout the UK. His third collection Not Dancing with Ingrid Pitt will be published by Burning Eye Books in 2020. He has performed with the likes of Sleaford Mods, John Hegley and Henry Normal and been commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery, BBC Radio 4 and Edinburgh International Literature Festival. He recently represented the east Midlands for National Poetry Day.
