Thursday 26 April: Words, Music, Glee and Delight

Poet, broadcaster & comedian Ian McMillan and Olympic composer Luke Carver Goss present a hilarious night of words, music & improv, featuring stories, songs and a musical created out of thin air!

He’s a regular on BBC Breakfast, Coast, Countryfile, Pick of the Week, Pointless Celebrities and Last Word. His rip-roaring poetry shows are legendary.

Luke Carver Goss’s latest piece Last Train to Elvet for Durham Brass Festival & Tredegar Town Band follows Pure Gold: a 4X4 relay for the Cultural Olympiad and compositions for Black Dyke Brass Band, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, The Sage Gateshead and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
