Bard of Barnsley Ian McMillan hosts weekly hit radio show The Verb. He’s Poet-in-Residence for Barnsley FC, The Academy of Urbanism and, until recently, English National Opera. He’s a regular on BBC Breakfast, Pointless Celebrities, Coast, Countryfile, Pick of the Week, Last Word, The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes (C4) … He was featured on The South Bank Show and cast away on Desert Island Discs. His rip-roaring poetry shows are legendary. Cats make him sneeze. Support comes from local poets, publishers, enablers and all round good eggs, Anne Holloway and Jim Otieno-Hall.
