Patience Agbabi at Kendal Poetry Festival

  • Kendal Poetry Festival Castle Green Hotel Kendal, LA9 6RG United Kingdom (map)

Patience Agbabi is one of those rare poets who effortlessly crosses the boundaries between page and stage. Her latest book Telling Tales (Canongate 2014) is a retelling of Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales for the 21st Century.

On Saturday, Patience, alongside Sasha Dugdale and Dove Cottage Young Poets Florence Jones, Solomon Russell-Cohen and Heather Hughes, will be performing her celebrated poetry at the Main Reading at 2.00PM.
