On Thursday 15th November at 7p.m. an evening of poetry by Teesdale Poets: Past, Present and Future will be held at NeST gallery, 25 Newgate, Barnard Castle, DL12 8NG.

Neil Diment will begin the evening by appearing in period costume to recite extracts from the work of Richard Watson, The Teesdale Bard.

This circular walk route, opening in 2013, begins and ends at Bowlees Visitor Centre and includes key locations associated with Watson’s famous poem, A Journey to Work.

Special guest Meg Peacocke, whose poems were inscribed in stone for the Kirkby Stephen Poetry Path, will read a selection on new work written since moving to Barnard Castle.

Following a short break for refreshments, ‘poets of the future’ will be invited to participate in an  open mic session. Each one will have five minutes to showcase work, ideally written in or about Teesdale. This part of the evening will also feature new work from Anne Dauber, whose poem The Great Grey Barn was transformed into a textile/poetry installation for the Barnard Castle Winning Words project.

Host for the evening and project lead, Judith Lesley Marshall will finish with a new version of the Teesdale Tale: Tommy and t’Butter Brass. Judith will also tell the audience about other dialect and poetry initiatives planned for the area.
