Poets can showcase their work during a Celebration of Poetry evening at Chichester Library on March 17.

Guest poet David Pollard will present a multimedia programme of images and words.

Classical guitarist Linda Kelsall-Barnett will provide a musical counterpoint to his words.

In the second half of the evening, there will be an open mic session when local poets will get the opportunity to share the platform and read their latest poems on any subject and in any style.

A big turn-out is expected to enjoy Mr Pollard’s unusual and stimulating presentation.

The event is at 7.30pm and entry is £5, which includes a glass of wine.

Tickets are available from the library or by phoning 01243 777351.
