Written by The Reader, 14th September 2010

Pies, Peas and Poetry (plus guests)
Tuesday 28 September at 7.30p.m
ACE Centre, Nelson

Another of Borderline's famous live poetry events hosted jointly with A Good Read. With guests Blake Morrison, Clare Shaw, Tricia Ashworth, Richard MacSween and open mic.

Join us for a relaxed evening of poetry, cabaret style event in the Performance suite, at the ACE Centre, Nelson. Tickets for this evening event (£6 or £5 concessions) should be booked in advance via the ACE centre on 01282 661080 or online.

Our very special guests at this event include two of Burnley's most famous poetic daughters: Clare Shaw who has used poetry extensively to explore her mental breakdown and Tricia Ashworth who brings to life the imaginative frenzy and topsy-turvy ingenuity of dyslexia. Other guest, Blake Morrison, grew up in Earby, and is well known author of And When Did You Last See Your Father? and The Last Weekend. He writes extensively on literature and cure.

We really hope you can join us!
