Library @ the Lightbox
16 years and above


Remember that great Barnsley novelist Eric Watson? Or that wonderful Victorian poet from Agnes Road, Dorothy Blossom? No, neither do we! But if you join poet Ian McMillan and artist Patrick Murphy, you can invent these lost writers and many more, write some of their work, and design their book covers. The Dorothy Blossom revival starts here! Ian McMillan is a poet and broadcaster who has lived in Barnsley all his life; he presents the language cabaret The Verb on BBC Radio 3. Patrick Murphy is a British artist, designer and curator. His work is exhibited internationally and held in public and private collections. All materials will be provided and refreshments will be available.
