Poets Vahni Capildeo and Mark Waldron, appearing at the Kendal Poetry Festival

Sunday 21st February – 8.00pm-9.00pm

Tickets: 
£5

Vahni Capildeo’s seven books and five pamphlets extend from prose poetry into immersive theatre. Capildeo’s work is intimate yet full of humour, far-ranging and far-reaching and always fearless in its challenge to the boundaries of poetry and what it can do. Mark Waldron’s work is deliciously bold and wickedly funny, with strands of whimsy, surrealism and the grotesque running through his work. He will be reading from his latest collection is Sweet like Rinky-Dink (Bloodaxe, 2019). Dove Cottage Young Poet Hannah Hodgson will also perform at this event.
