Poetry on the River Weaver

Anderton Boat Lift

7th April 2016
This is an old event, please click here to find more events

Enjoy a fabulous boat trip through the Anderton Boat Lift and along the River Weaver while listening to the entertaining words of former Canal Poet Laureate Jo Bell.

Boatyards, kingfishers and life aboard a narrowboat are just some of the waterway-inspired subjects for Jo’s poems which are sure to delight you as you cruise along the River Weaver.

Why not combine the experience of on-board poetry, with lunch or a cream tea in the Anderton Boat Lift Café. And don’t forget to leave time to explore the fascinating free visitor centre.

Many of Jo’s waterway poems are featured in her latest poetry collection Kith, published in 2015. She is winner of the Charles Causley Prize and the Manchester Cathedral Poetry Prize and lives aboard a narrowboat.

Time: Meet at 2.30pm, boat leaves at 3.00pm

Venue: Anderton Boat Lift, Lift Lane, Northwich, Cheshire, CW9 6FW

Tickets: £17.50 (including boat trip through Lift and along River Weaver)
