A Festival of Love: North Cornwall Poems and Prose
October 13th 11:00-12:00 St Endellion Church
Oxford Professor of Systematic Theology, Paul Fiddes, leads an original service he has devised around his anthology of specially submitted works on the theme of love. As a church service this is a free, unticketed event.
Imtiaz Dharker and Zaffar Kunial
Sunday 13th October, 14:30-15:30, Main Marquee
This year’s poetry reading comes from two distinguished poets peculiarly well placed to write about questions of belonging and identity. Imtiaz Dharker is a Lahore-born, Glasgow-raised poet, artist and documentary filmmaker. She has won the Queen’s Gold Medal but famously declined the Laureateship this year to focus on her writing. Zaffar Kunial was born in Birmingham and lives in Hebden Bridge and celebrates his mixed Pakistani-Anglo-Scottish heritage in his work. His debut collection, Us, was shortlisted for the 2018 T S Eliot Prize and the Costa Poetry Award.
