Be immersed in a beguiling recital of words and semi-improvised music with leading poet, author, and raconteur Chris Tutton and harpist Anne Denholm.

Chris Tutton is the critically acclaimed and award-winning author of seven collections of poetry. Coined by Ned Sherrin as “the master of the short poem”, his work has been described as “absolutely beautiful” by Alexander Waugh, with Iain Anderson of the BBC noting that it was “philosophy in poetry form”. Anne Denholm is one of Britain's leading harpists – former Official Harpist to HRH The Prince of Wales and a founding member of The Hermes Experiment.
