Roger McGough is the author of over a hundred books of poetry for adults and children. He will be reading and talking and stirring and shaking his poems into a cocktail of verses for a Nottingham party to remember.

Host of the long-running Poetry Please and President of the Poetry Society, Roger has been honoured with a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool. This is the nation's favourite poet at his finest. Join him and two young, upcoming poets online for readings, discussion and a Q&A with Roger  with bookers able to submit questions in advance.
