Liz Lochhead: 50 Years of a Pioneering Poet
Sponsored by
Open University

Think of the people who’ve shaped Scotland’s cultural confidence and Liz Lochhead’s name will be near the top of the list. For 50 years, she’s given us glistening poetry and theatre to reflect the shifting times. Her seminal debut collection, Memo for Spring, helped to break open the doors of what was a boys’ club in 1972, long before she became Scotland’s second Makar. Join us for a celebration of the resonant and vital work of Liz Lochhead.
