Repton Litfest'22 | Just Asking : Bert Flitcroft
Enjoy the company of poet Bert Flitcroft in this talk and informal discussion of poems from his published collections, including his recently published ‘JUST ASKING’. But what’s the question?
This is a poetry which captures life experienced by an older person. Whether it’s soul mates, shopping at Sainsbury’s, sex, the sixties, Peppa Pig, gardening …. There’s something for everyone (whatever your age) and there’s nothing Bert likes better than the chance to share his poetry and chatting with an audience about their own related experience.
Bert was Staffordshire Poet Laureate 2015-17 and has three collections of poetry published. He has been Poet in Residence at the Southwell Poetry Festival and has performed at a number of major national festivals including The Edinburgh International Book Festival, The Birmingham Literature Festival, and many others. He has worked as resident poet with one of our ‘National Treasures’, The Wedgwood Collection at the V&A; as resident poet with the prestigious R.I.B.A exhibition ‘The Road Less Travelled’; and recently as part of the University of Keele
project ‘Labelling the Museum’.
