Former Poet Laureate to speak on Essex countryside in Colchester
6:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
A FORMER Poet Laureate will visit Colchester to give a talk on the Essex countryside.
Sir Andrew Motion will appear at Firstsite, in High Street, to speak on the importance of preserving rural landscapes.
He said: “It’s absolutely vital we engage a new generation.
“This is partly so 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, at 7pm on November 28, is open to the public as well as members of the Campaign to Protect Rural England.
Tickets cost £15. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
