Former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion to visit Colchester
3:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
A FORMER Poet Laureate will visit Colchester to deliver a talk on his upbringing in rural Essex.
Sir Andrew Motion, who is also the president of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), will be in the town in November to discuss how to preserve the landscape.
Sir Andrew said: “It’s absolutely vital we engage a new generation.
“This is partly so that we can look ahead and feel the defence of the countryside is in good hands, and partly so we can encourage as many people as possible to enjoy and understand our beautiful landscapes.”
The talk will take place at Firstsite, in High Street, at 7.30pm on November 28.
