After a hugely successful launch, Love Poetry are delighted to announce their second event of the year. 

'Love…' in Summer promises two world class performances from two incredible poets, HELEN IVORY and MARTIN FIGURA. Expect powerful readings in a beautiful theatre space designed to raise the platform for contemporary poetry. 

The evening will also play host to four specially selected voices: 

Jayne Stanton, Hayley Frances, Chis Fewings and Helen Calcutt​

We are also delighted to welcome back the exquisite acoustic tones of HANNAH BROWN for a taste of live music. 

As always a delicious selection of refreshments will be available. 


HELEN IVORY (on 'Waiting for Bluebeard', Bloodaxe Books) 

“Each poem shows a mastery of nerve as layers of survival are unravelled…. Not a word is out of place. Language is used superbly to obtain the effects she seeks.” Sally Evans Poetry Scotland

“Ivory’s unique voice and stark language makes her world remarkably refreshing. Its beautiful simplicity is engaging, allowing the reader to be easily lured into this seemingly familiar world, while being seduced by the poet’s subtle use of magical realism.”  The List


MARTIN FIGURA (on 'Whistle', Arrowhead Press, performance producer Sarah Ellis) 

“Profoundly honest and at the same time joyfully entertaining” Independent on Sunday “Figura was a revelation – funny, sharp and on top form.” Robert McCrum – The Observer “… a rare gift, his photographer’s eye and poet’s ear tell his story with candour, restraint, and perfect detail, showing how art’s restraint and life’s truth can illuminate, uplift and transform.” Gillian Clarke
