Music hall meets nightclub meets book club - it probably shouldn't work but it absolutely does.

Simon Armitage has published ten collections of poetry including, most recently, 'Seeing Stars'. He has written for radio, stage, television and film, and received numerous accolades, including a Forward Prize and an Ivor Novello Award. In 2010 he was awarded a CBE for services to poetry. His poem, 'New Dawn Fades' appears in 'One For The Trouble - Book Slam Vol. 1'. His latest book is 'Walking Home', which chronicles his experiences as a modern troubadour, walking the Pennine Way to the village of his birth.
