Seamus Heaney HomePlace, 45 Main Street, Bellaghy, BT45 8HT

One of the UK's most popular poets, the eccentric and very funny John Hegley, makes his debut at Seamus Heaney HomePlace. This reading (with added singing) will consist largely of poems from John's latest book 'Verses on Keats, Dickens, Daleks', which has been inspired by his memories of his childhood days.

Expect Keats, Daleks, soot, belief, osmosis and 'compassionate autobiographical poems and correspondence between family members'.

During the evening, verses will be spoken and sung, hearts will be broken and repaired, but above all, the joy of poetry will be celebrated in John Hegley's own inimitable way.
