Two Events by Tony Curtis

Posted by Tenby Museum on Sep 20, 2016 Blog, Forthcoming Events No Comments

Next week there will be two events by poet Professor Tony Curtis at Tenby Museum & Art Gallery.

On Thursday 29 September, his play Gwen John will be performed in the museum gallery, with Trish Gould taking on the role of the Haverfordwest born artist who achieved international fame. 2016 marks the 140th anniversary of Gwen’s birth and the museum has a fine selection of her work on display so this is the ideal opportunity to catch this dramatic performance. There will be no specific charge for this performance but will be covered by the admission ticket to the museum.  The performance starts at 12pm.

On Friday 30 September Tony will be giving a reading from his most recent publication From the Fortunate Isles: New and Selected Poems. Seren have celebrated the 70th birthday of this Welsh poet with the publication of this book, which features poems from ten of his previous collections published over fifty years, as well as a substantial number of new poems. This event will take place at the museum at 7pm. Tickets cost £5 and as there are limited space, please do contact the museum (01834 842809) if you are interested in attending.
