Never miss another 'Roger McGough' show
As Far As I Know: Roger McGough
A new book of poems by Roger McGough is always an event and As Far As I Know is truly a cause for celebration.
Hilarious and surreal, he is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough's characteristic wit and wordplay too.
'His poetry is like a supermodel who can complete a Sudoku puzzle moments before swishing down the catwalk - easy on the eye and smart as a whip' (Lorne Jackson, Birmingham Daily Post).
'The patron saint of poetry' (Carol Ann Duffy).
The performance is followed by a booksigning
For adults and ages 14+ years.
Hilarious and surreal, Roger McGough is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough's characteristic wit and wordplay too.
