Coastlines: Sea poetry from Tentsmuir

Wednesday 4 March, 14:00 - 15:45
Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Studio Theatre

A relaxed poetry reading from Anna Crowe, Jim Crumley and others

To celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters, Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve, located a few miles north of St Andrews, has invited some favourite poets to read poems which engage with waves and tides, beaches and seas, life’s ebb and flow. The event will also include a multi-sensory poem, performed here for the very first time.

In the new year, Scottish Natural Heritage will run a competition for poetry about Tentsmuir and they hope to announce the winner at this event.

This will be a relaxed event. We hope many people may choose to attend a relaxed performance, either as an access requirement or to enjoy the inclusive environment. The event also partners with PAMIS, the only organisation in Scotland that works solely with people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and their families.

In partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage and PAMIS

Participants: Anna Crowe and Jim Crumley
Jim Crumley: Polly Pullar
