A Burns Night Thing
An alternative Burns Night hosted by Faber poet and local Will Burns - A night celebrating poetry, music and conviviality.
Come and catch two up and coming literary talents in the intimate surroundings of the King and Queen, with readings of their own original work as well as some Robert Burns favourites... with a very, very special guest still to be announced, this promises to be a cracking night of poetry.
Your poets for the evening will be:
Born in Ireland and raised in London, Declan Ryan was named one of the four Faber New Poets in 2014, his work praised in The Guardian for its '... unshowy candiness and emotional power.' Declan is an assured, accomplished poet of rare gifts.
Ruby Silk was born and raised in Brighton. A musician and poet, and currently working as a poetry editor at Ambit, Ruby is part of a hugely exciting young generation of poets working in English and destined for great things.
We will also be serving Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, Cranachan and Bobby Burns cocktails on the night. Booking advisable...
We look forward to seeing you.
