Welcome to our August programme. We start with the always interesting Open Mic session at 4pm (poets and musicians welcome), then move on to showcase our guest artists from 5pm. The music will come from indie band Billy and the Seltz (Max McAlpine and Billy Bathgate). They prefer to let their music do the talking, so you'll need to come along to see what they're about. Our guest poet is Rachel McAlpine, who has long delighted audiences with her insightful and expressive work in many genres. She will read from her popular new book of poems, 'How To Be Old', which she describes as her first proper collection for 23 years. Well worth the wait!
