Roger McGough: As Far as I Know

Sat 19 May, 7:30pm

Tickets: £17.50 , approx running time: 105 (with a 15 min interval)

Hilarious and surreal, McGough is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough’s characteristic wit and wordplay too. President of the Poetry Society, he has been honoured with a CBE for services to literature and the Freedom of the City of Liverpool and now you can see him live on the Square Chapel stage!

‘The patron saint of poetry’
Carol Ann Duffy
