About the event

Roger McGough reading, Basingstoke. An evening of poems to amaze and delight. McGough wrestles with mortality, seeks love in the launderette and jives in Macca’s trousers. He shares the pain of Lord Godiva and Mr Nightingale, considers his Final Poem and shakes a fist at Alzheimer’s. Addresses, elegies and ever perceptive playfulness make this a must-not-miss. “The patron saint of poetry” Carol Ann Duffy. Suitable for 14 years and over. Tickets £16.
