What's On

29th September 2018

Renowned Scottish poet Liz Lochhead reads her poems and delivers entertaining monologues whilst Steve Kettley adds musical interludes on the saxophone.

“From bittersweet to rude and raunchy Liz weaves a spellbinding and beguiling show mixing poems, monologues and music".


Born in Motherwell in 1947, Lochhead studied Drawing and Painting at the Glasgow School of Art where she began to write seriously, gradually losing her way with her initial dream of becoming a painter. Her first book of poetry, Memo for Spring, was published in 1972 and sold 5,000 copies.

Accompanied by the soulful sax of Steve Kettley, she presents an intoxicating mix of some of her best work over the past 45 years, including from most recent collections A Choosing and 2016 collection, Fugitive Colours.
