Len Pennie:

venue Buccleuch Marquee
date Saturday 15 June
time 7:15 pm
ticket prices £10 | £8


Writing predominantly in the Scots language, Len Pennie’s inspiration often springs from the promotion of minority languages, from the survivors of domestic abuse and the de-stigmatisation of mental illness. Poyums is the debut collection from this performance poet sensation and it is about loving, learning, surviving, growing and giving. Len’s voice is bold, unashamedly frank and unmistakably hers. Poyums announces a formidable new talent. Moving deftly between Scots and English, the collection is as approachable as it is affecting.
