Henry Normal and guests – live, online and free!

Published 23rd April 2021

In association with Nottingham Poetry Festival, Inspire presents Nottingham’s own poet, broadcaster and producer Henry Normal in a new, live, online weekly chat and poetry slot starting at noon on Wednesday 5 May 2021. The New Poetry Society will feature a different guest poet each week and audiences can enjoy conversation and poetry, with live Q&A. And it’s completely free

Following the success of his Poetry Hour for Inspire Libraries in 2018 and his Virtual Poetry Tour of last year, Henry will bring his trademark warmth and humour to delight and amuse audiences over the county and beyond.

Henry Normal says: “Join me as I talk to some great local poets, enjoy new poems and see where the conversation takes us. Together, let's put poetry and inspiration at the centre of our week.”

The ten guest poets and dates (all starting at noon, and will take place online via Zoom) are: 

  • 5 May - Bridie Squires
  • 12 May - Manjit Sahota
  • 19 May - Panya Banjoko
  • 26 May - Andrew Graves
  • 2 June - Anne Holloway
  • 9 June - Cathy Grindrod
  • 16 June - Cleo Asabre-Holt
