About the event

Simon Armitage at the Cheltenham Literature Festival. In the summer of 2010, the renowned poet Simon Armitage walked home penniless to Yorkshire along the Pennine Way, earning his living as a modern troubadour by giving readings in each stop along the way. He gives us an engaging and humorous account of this taxing, revealing and very northern English journey, the subject of his book, Walking Home. Tickets £7.
