Poetry Patch @ Burnage and Levenshulme Gardens

Poetry Patch: 

Time to put down the spade, take off the boots, slip into a fine cocktail and savour the poetry of gardens, plants and nature. 

Shamshad Khan recently transplanted from Levenshulme across Manchester, but is still blooming, Shamshad has a collection Megalomaniac, her poems are widely anthologised and she has performed on local and national radio.

John Calvert is an escapee from Accrington who put down roots in this part of Manchester. He runs Hard Rain, a poetry workshop group with guests and performances at Thairish from 6pm on the last Monday every month.

Helen Clare arrived on the wind over a decade ago and is now established in Levenshulme, Helen started her professional life as a Biology teacher. She has released a collection Mollusc and a pamphlet Entomology.

As a finale, Levenshulme resident and acclaimed singer-songwriter Claire Mooney will sing two garden inspired songs, which she has written especially for the garden festival.
The ticket price of £10 includes a Buttery botanical cocktail.

Booking in advance recommended.
