On Wednesday 29 October Patricia Debney (Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing in the School of English) will be performing alongside fellow former Canterbury Poet Laureates Sarah Salway and Patience Agbabi, and current laureate Dan Simpson, as part of the Canterbury Festival.
Each of the performers have significant links with the University of Kent. Both Sarah Salway and Patience Agbabi have taught in the School of English in recent years and Dan Simpson, spoken word poet and compere, graduated from the School of English in 2008. Dan has gone on to make a significant contribution to the local, national and international performance poetry scene, not least becoming this year’s Canterbury Poet Laureate.
‘The Canterbury Laureates: An evening of spoken word’ takes place at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge on Wednesday 29 October 2014 at 8pm. Tickets cost £9 and can be purchased online on the Canterbury Festival website.
