Winter Lights

Winter Songs (photograph by Paul Evans)Following the success of our recent Winter Songs event at The Fat Cat in Sheffield, we’ve uploaded the evening’s first two parts to SoundCloud (the recordings were available until 13 February. Part three is still available here). The first selection of poems (read by Angelina Ayers, Matthew Clegg, Andrew Hirst, Chris Jones and Fay Musselwhite) explores connections between winter and ideas of home; the second moves through winter landscapes.
