20/12/2019 Sorry to report that John Cooper Clarke is not well and can’t do the Christmas Poetry Bash on Saturday.

He’ll be back next year - but he’s just not well enough for Saturday.

We’ve sent him good wishes from the Arts Centre and on behalf of everyone who’s bought a ticket as I’m sure you’d join us in wishing him well.

We’re going to go ahead with the gig - we still have three brilliant poets are all going to step up and extend their sets a little. Martin Newell, Luke Wright, Ross Sutherland.

But of course for those who would like a full refund that’s completely alright. Just email us via or call the Box Office on 01206 500900.
