Saturday 30 January 2010, 2.30pm
Venue: Central Hall Westminster, London
Tickets are £10. Telephone 01497 822629 or at The Hay Festival website.
Tickets will be available at the door on the day for cash only.
All proceeds will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Haiti Earthquake Appeal.
This event has been made possible thanks to the huge generosity of the Guardian Hay Festival, Westminster Central Hall and Eclipse Sound and Light.
I’ve no doubt this will be an afternoon filled with memorable poetry, so if you’re in the area do treat yourself with a ticket.
