Join Katrina Porteous and Alice Robinson for a special performance to accompany the Lost Words Exhibition and International Women’s Day.

Much of Katrina Porteous’s poetry is rooted in a detailed and loving celebration of the landscapes, people and wildlife of Northumberland.

Her 2014 Bloodaxe collection, Two Countries, shortlisted for the Portico Prize, was described in The Morning Star as “one of the most distinctive and important collections of the year” and her latest, Edge, was a Guardian “Poetry Books of the Month” choice in January. Katrina also writes in Northumbrian dialect and is President of the Northumbrian Language Society.

For this performance Katrina is joined by former BBC Young Folk Musician of the Year finalist, Northumbrian piper Alice Robinson.

The performance will last for ninety minutes. Free parking is included in the ticket price.
