Heart of Hawick and The Eildon Tree Magazine welcome poet Wendy Cope OBE to Tower Mill on November 8 at 7.30pm.

Since her poetry collection Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, Cope has been at the forefront of the British poetry scene. A winner of the Cholmondeley Award in 1987, other publications include Serious Concerns, the Whitbread Poetry Award-shortlisted If I Don’t know, and Cures for Love.

A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, in 1998 she was listeners’ choice in a BBC Radio 4 poll to succeed Ted Hughes as Poet Laureate. Wendy Cope’s incisive, funny and heart-wrenching verse justifies her National Treasure status. Her accessible poetry is always read to packed audiences. Tickets £12.
