Liz Lochhead on Video

followed by the open-mic

15th December 2014

For those who missed our end of year reading with Liz Lochhead (the Scots Makar / National poet of Scotland), we have all 13 of Liz’s poems on video for you. Liz gave a fabulous reading and an excellent open-mic followed to end off the year. With thanks to Rab Urquhart for capturing the footage.

(or view on the Ó Bhéal Youtube channel).
