There will be an interval with wine and soft drinks on sale

The second half of the evening will feature the winners of the 2017 Borderlines Poetry Competition, who will read their winning poems and be presented with cash prizes.

There will also be readings from the Dove Cottage Young Poets, introduced by Kim Moore, who is currently poet-in-residence.

This is a free event but donations in aid of a Cumbrian charity, Night Stop, which provides emergency overnight accommdation to homeless young people, are strongly encouraged. The proceeds from the sale of refreshments will also be donated to our chosen charity.
