Simon Armitage, the local poet, will be walking the Pennine Way from north to South during July. On his journey he'll be stopping off to do poetry readings. These readings are free but Simon will be passing his hat around afterwards and is hoping to be able to fund his whole journey by doing this.
On Saturday July 24th, Simon will be in Marsden, doing a reading at the British Waterways Tunnel End Visitor Centre from 8pm. Booking is essential if you want to come and hear the reading, call the Marsden Moor Estate on 01484 847016 to book a ticket. There are limited spaces, so call early to make sure you'll be there!
