They may look serious in these pictures, but the first Quay Words Winter reading at Exeter Custom House promises an uplifting treat on a dark winter’s early evening. We invite you to join acclaimed novelist and poet Joe Dunthorne and Devon’s own much-celebrated performance poet, Matt Harvey for an evening of positivity through poetry.
Banish the blues of the darkening nights with a warm welcome and poetry of a positive persuasion. Spend an hour in the company of two witty poets and prepare to be uplifted.
Concessions available, see box office listing for details.
