Afternoon Tea with Wendy Cope

- October 3rd, 2016

August 6, 2013 @ 3:00 pm – 11:59 pm
The Platform

A completely fresh and entertaining setting for a poetry reading from the quiet phenomenon who has proved quality can be popular! The idea of a slightly seditious but seriously good ironic moan about life’s little irritations over a cucumber sandwich and a cuppa with Wendy has proved unfailingly popular.

Wendy reads a hilariously dissatisfied and ironic set either side of the tea….with a question and answer session to round off the event, plus an ever popular after-show book signing.

In an ambience akin to a cosy fireside reading Wendy charms and amuses her audience with her poetry. At times sharp and punchy, at times soft and contemplative, Wendy moves through her compilation of 25 years work “TWO CURES FOR LOVE” and her recent collection “FAMILY VALUES” with ease…..and beside the irony there’s plenty of life celebration too.

£12.50 inc afternoon tea
