Plenty of poetry, much humour

POET and writer Jackie Kay has contributed to one of the most exuberant and popular events in the Festival of Spirituality - Poetry in the Persian Tent.

As well as reading from her work, which links human down-to-earth experience with a joyful approach to life and deep observational skills, Jackie produced gales of alughter with her comments and interludes.

She was performing alongside the makar, Liz Lochhead, poet Stephanie Green, who has curated and organised the series, William Letford and musician John Sampson again.

The picture shows Jackie Kay signing books and talking with people in the audience after the performance. 

Poetry in the Persian Tent continues each day at 11am in the Hall at St John's Church, through to 26 August.
