Poet Laureate Rides Again
Ian Wedde,(photo right by Oliver Read), in Poet Laureate guise, is back on the road again, this time to Matahiwi marae in the Hawkes Bay, where on 10 March he will receive his Laureate tokotoko.
On the same day at the Hastings City Gallery Ian will be joined by Cilla McQueen, John Newton, Robert Sullivan, Hinemoana Baker, Marty Smith and Amy Barnard in an event organised by Creative Hastings. An extravaganza of poetry and with musical interlude is anticipated, and not to be missed if within coo-ee.
A 7.30 for 8pm start, tickets are available through Ticketek.
