Poet brings tale of chivalry and love to gallery

Poet Michael Gibson brings Sir Gaiwain and the Green Knight, a wonderful 14th century tale of chivalry and courtly love, to the Green Man Gallery in Buxton, in an unmissable night of poetry, adventure and other-worldly forces.

Aimed at an adult audience, Michael will tell the story through his own rhythmic modern translation of the medieval poem, passages of narration and a taste of the original Middle English in which it was written.

This cracking tale has strong connections with the local area. The performance includes incidental music by Mark Atherton.

The show is on February 11 and doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Advance booking recommended.

There is a pre-performance talk from 4.30-5.30pm. For more details go to http://www.thegreenmangallery.com
