Towards the end of the Wool and Water festival, there will be an evening reading at which half a dozen local poets will read from the pamphlets. Jo Bousfield, Kim Baker, Eley Furrell, James Holliday, JLM Morton, Maxine Relton and Maria Stadnicka will read poems which relate to the festival theme and which address, in different and thoughtful ways, the pleasures of ‘wild swimming', exhuming Roman remains, and drinking Stroudwater dry. There will be interesting overlaps, and imaginative takes on cloth and toil.
Both books will be on sale, ‘Wool’ and 'Water’, (£5 each).
