Gerard Manley Hopkins: life and poems
Talk with Readings by Graham Fawcett
Thursday 1 February 2018 6.30pm
Tickets: £10 or £25 with buffet dinner to follow

Enduringly popular and current, Hopkins is famous for his sprung rhythms which he uses to express his passion for the natural world. However it took three minor miracles for any of Hopkins’ poems to be written at all. Come to the talk to hear the poems and the story of how they came to be written.
Poems for which Hopkins is loved to this day, like ‘Pied Beauty’, ‘Harry Ploughman’, ‘Binsey Poplars’, ‘God’s Grandeur’, ‘Spring’ and that other contender for greatest Hopkins poem, ‘The Windhover’. All of these will feature in Hopkins Night at Sladers Yard.

Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets together for over 37 years.

The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes.
