Eliza Carthy, John Cooper Clarke, Simon Armitage, Joe Bone

Ian McMillan's guests at the BBC Radio Theatre are singer-songwriter Eliza Carthy, poets John Cooper Clarke and Simon Armitage. Plus comedy-drama from Joe Bone.

Ian McMillan starts The Verb New Year with Radio 3's language party from the Radio Theatre in London.

The singer-songwriter Eliza Carthy and members of her band will be joining Ian to kick off the song, celebration and dreams of new possibilities. Or to stave off the winter blues at the very least.

Poet Simon Armitage will be sharing his new translation of the most famous of Arthurian stories, the Middle English Morte D'Arthur.

Punk poet John Cooper Clarke will be performing new work.

And there'll be comedy-drama from last year's hit at the Edinburgh Festival, Joe Bone.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.
