Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Theatre to host tea and poetry afternoon

Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Theatre is inviting residents to enjoy tea with poet Wendy Cope.

The special event will be held on Saturday May 7th at 3pm with a relaxed and informal reading of her superb poetry.

"In an ambience akin to a cozy fireside reading, Wendy will charm and amuse her audience with her poetry," says theatre manager Sam Nicol.

"Her readings are at times sharp and punchy, and at times soft and contemplative."

"This will be a completely fresh and entertaining setting for a poetry reading from the quiet phenomenon who has proved quality can be popular!"

"The idea of a slightly seditious but seriously good ironic moan about life’s little irritations over a bickie and a cuppa with Wendy has proved unfailingly popular."

"Wendy will read a hilariously dissatisfied and ironic set either side of the tea, with a question and answer session to round off the event, plus an ever popular after-show book signing."

Tickets are priced at £15 to include a light tea, with special group rates available for Book Clubs coming together (groups of 10 +). Call the Box Office on 01278 784464 for more details.
