Split Screen - Poetry inspired by film & television

Saturday, November 23rd 2013
A light hearted evening of poetry  on themes as wide-ranging as Julie Andrews, Star Trek, Jaws, Ealing Comedy, Bruce Lee and Inspector Morse.

Sally Evans, Sheila Templeton, Carolyn Richardson and Andy Jackson read from the Split Screen anthology (Red Squirrel Press 2012 ed.

Followed by a launch of Donald Adamson’s first full-length collection
