Join us for a guided walk around Tipton where poets and local historians will bring to life the facts and fables, the truth and tall stories of Tipton, now and then. Alongside Emma Purshouse, readings by poets Billy Spakemon, Brendan Hawthorne, Casey Bailey, Dave Pitt, Kuli Kohli and Roy MacFarlane will take place. Places will be limited. Booking instructions will follow shortly.
