An Evening with Roger McGough

@ Gala Theatre and Cinema

Book Now

07 October 2019

We’re delighted to welcome Roger McGough back to Durham, as he presents his brand new collection, joinedupwriting. The collection ranges from poems about forgotten friendships and the idiosyncrasies of family life to the trauma of war and contemporary politics. 

These poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark, but always with McGough’s signature wit, irreverence and vivacity. 

Roger McGough is one of Britain’s best-loved poets and has written over seventy books since the publication of The Mersey Sound in 1967, which became one of the best selling poetry anthologies of all time.
