Sat 26 Sept - Two poets of place and personal histories, Susie Campbell and Lucy Furlong

Susie Campbell talks about her collection 'The Bitters' derived from her research into the patient at the former asylum where her grandmother was a patient, and Lucy Furlong reads from her collection 'Clew'.
Susie and Lucy share their current projects. Susie is working on a follow-up sequence to 'The Bitters' based on the Enquiry Reports of the Women's Industrial Council and into her reading of the London College of Fashion archive into women's industries. Lucy has been producing a poetry map of areas where her father used to play, a very personal and touching exploration of his neighbourhood where she still lives with her own family in Surrey.

Jude CM sings a Gaelic folk song to remember Lucy's Irish ancestors.

This show has been rescheduled from its original slot of Saturday 19 September.
