Leith Festival: CultFusion #6

  • The Persevere Bar 398 Easter Road Edinburgh, Scotland, EH6 8HT United Kingdom (map)

Scotland’s most misleadingly named poetry night returns to Leith Festival once again. This year we welcome Gerda Stevenson, renowned Scottish actress, writer, director, singer and songwriter, recently acclaimed for her collection Quines: Poems in tribute to women of Scotland; Marjorie Lotfi Gill, a seasoned poet who last year published a short collection entitled Refuge, including compelling poems about her childhood experience of the Iranian Revolution; the admired young Canadian Patrick James Errington, author of Glean, and the dauntless hanger-on Rex Sweeney. There’s music too, and a warm, appreciative audience that’s well worth being part of.

Tickets are £3 and are available from the Leith Festival website here.
