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
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’.
