Carol Ann Duffy & Friends

Royal Exchange Theatre

Dame Carol Ann Duffy returns to host her hugely successful poetry and music nights at Manchester's iconic Royal Exchange.

Following the unprecedented success of past seasons, Carol Ann Duffy DBE returns to the relaxed and atmospheric Royal Exchange Studio Theatre to introduce emerging and established writers: readings from the Manchester Writing School’s best new poets and a performance by a special guest star of national stature. There’s a chance to meet and mingle with the poets and get copies of their books signed during the interval, and music from the house jazz band.

Monday 20th March 2017, 7pm – special guest: Adam O'Riordan

At the Royal Exchange Theatre, St Ann’s Square, Manchester 

Tickets: £12/£10. Book online at or call the box office on +44 (0) 161 833 9833.
