Never miss another 'Roger McGough' show
As Far As I Know: Roger McGough
A new collection of poems for adults and an evening to amaze and delight! A new book of poems by Roger McGough is always an event and As Far As I Know (pub.Penguin) 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
Performance is followed by a book signing.
For age 14 and over
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.

Lily The Pink, the Aintree Iron, Scaffold, GRIMMS, The Mersey Sound with Adrian Henri and Brian Patten, and presenter of BBC R4's long-running Poetry Please. The beat goes on.
