The Alex Cluness Memorial Event

  • City Gate Hotel
  • October 4
  • 19:30 - 20:30

Alex Cluness, who died earlier this year at the age of 49, was a poet and arts administrator who was a driving force behind the establishment of the Exeter Poetry Festival. We are pleased to offer this tribute event on National Poetry Day.

The evening will feature readings from Fiona Benson and Ann Gray, with contributions from other South West poets who knew Alex: David Woolley, and Alasdair Paterson. Some of Alex’s poetry will also be read. Prices are lowered for this event because of financial assistance from Literature Works’ Annual Fund.
