The Quartet Poets
Join The Quartet Poets for a poetry event full of insight, laughter and surprises.
Poets Bert Biscoe and Pol Hodge whose work as duo Der Vardh combining Cornish, English and Cornish dialect poems, songs, have been entertaining audiences for the past 20 years.
Jo Egar is an accomplished poet whose work explores folklore, feelings and landscapes and Des Hannigan is a fisherman, climber, traveller and journalist whose poetry delves into the landscapes of Penwith, fishing trade and human nature.
This event is brought to you in partnership with the Q Fund who distribute small grants to support research work in literary or allied subjects with a connection to Cornwall.
The Q Fund is keen to promote diversity, excellence and creativity in Cornish literature and humanities.
The Fund was established with a legacy following the death of ‘Q’, Sir Arthur Quiller Couch, who lived in Fowey.
Q was a prolific writer, Professor of English Literature at Cambridge University, Chairman of Cornwall Education Committee and Commodore of the Royal Fowey Yacht Club.
