About the event

Roger McGough reading, Nottingham. 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 & ever perceptive playfulness make this a must-not-miss. Roger McGough was honoured with a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool for good behaviour. There’s poetry in the house and McGough fitted it. Followed by a booksigning. Tickets £15/£13.50. Call 0115 941 9419 or visit
