Radio 3's The Verb comes live from the Durham Book Festival bursting with new writing, poetry and performance, and hosted in front of an audience at Durham's Gala Theatre by poet Ian McMillan.
Ian's cabaret of the spoken word features novelist and poet Jackie Kay, who'll present a brand new piece of writing; and Sony Award winner Peter Blegvad with one of his legendary Eartoons in collaboration with scholar Richard Gameson who specialises in the history of the book from antiquity to the Renaissance at Durham University. The programme also features poems from the award-winning Anne Stevenson and local poet Matthew Caley will read some new work
This live programme from the Verb is one of three events that Radio 3 is staging across the North East in the run-up to its annual Free Thinking festival of ideas at the Sage Gateshead in early November.
