Safety in Numbers is a new collection from the nation’s favourite poet. What will we have learned from stillness and silence? From sharing, not taking? Waiting, not pushing? Whispering, not shouting? Dawdling, not rushing? Traversing rocky terrain with the assurance of a poetry Rover on Mars, McGough brings down to earth the strangeness of a time on hold. Staycations, adultery in lockdown, ghosts and gamblers, as well as playful advice to up and coming poets. (Don’t do it!)
Lyra's 2022 Festival Poet Edson Burton performs brand new work and responds to the theme of Breaking Boundaries: New Worlds, accompanied by guitarist Robert.
