Film Screening and Reading: Eamon Bourke’s film, Diary of The Last Man, delves deep into the themes of Robert Minhinnick’s poetry in search of the man himself. Combining poetry, performance, interview and layered imagery, the film explores the many identities of the poet, real and imagined. The film Diary of the Last Man is screened, following an introduction from its director. As the film finishes, Robert Minhinnick will take to the stage to perform his poetry. ‘Robert Minhinnick’s new collection confirms his status as one of the most important poets of these turbulent times. Bleakly elegiac, environmentally political, vital and visionary, his poems cast an extraordinary light over our darkening landscapes.’ Carol Ann Duffy on Diary Of The Last Man. Ticket includes a glass of wine.

Diary of the Last Man was shorlisted for the 2017 TS Eliot Prize.
