Benjamin Guilfoyle aka 'The Woolly Hat Poet' is taking his poetry on the road as he walks 110 miles to raise money for the Lancaster Homeless Shelter and the Central Lancaster Children's Library.
Performing 12 poetry shows on 12 consecutive days in 12 different towns Benjamin will be walking between each show relying on the kindness of his audiences to put him up for the night.
Along the way Benjamin will be supported by guest poets from each town and open mic for those who would like to perform their own work.
This is the ninth show of the tour. All proceeds from ticket sales to go to charity.
Tickets are £5 and you can book online at: https://www.trybooking.com/

"Poetry has always fascinated me, and I started writing seriously around twenty years ago. My poetry divides itself into a number of styles, which also includes haiku and Lancashire dialect, and is largely observational. I try to paint a picture with words in the same way an artist does with paints and colours – I hope it works. In fact, a number of artists have asked me to write words to complement their paintings. I’ve had a number of poems published in magazines and booklets. I also enjoy performing at local open mic nights.
A number of collections and poems are on my website www.alanmckean.co.uk which is regularly updated."
