Poetry Hour with Henry Normal & Clare Stewart
Friday 6th May
6pm - 7pm
Clifton Library - Southchurch Dr, Clifton, Nottingham NG11 8AB
Welcome to Poetry Hour! A chance for you to enjoy some wise and witty words from the wonderful Henry Normal and his special guests, in thirteen libraries around the city, completely free, as part of Nottingham Poetry Festival. No registration required – just show up.
Audience members are encouraged to bring a poem to read or simply to come and enjoy the poetry.
Festival founder, the Nottingham-born Henry Normal, began his career as a stand-up poet and went on to become a co-writer of award-winning TV and film hits including The Royle Family, The Mrs Merton Show and Coogan’s Run, and producer of Gavin and Stacey, Alan Partridge and the Oscar-nominated film Philomena.
On his Clifton Library stop, he’ll be joined by the brilliant Clare Stewart. Truth is, Clare Stewart has never understood the difference between bio and non-bio – she is mostly quite misty-brained, vague and flakey but manages to come up with a corker of a poem from time to time. She also produces non-poems in the form of paintings, embroideries, cartoons, short stories, a wonderful daughter and some very nice pasta sauces. She also tries to earn a bit of money as a transcriptionist. She performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.
