Niall McDevitt a celebration of his life.


SOLD OUT at the National Poetry Library! So moved to see the DEMAND for Niall’s work. But good news for those who didn’t get tickets: we have a new, slightly larger venue, Weston Roof Pavilion, also in the Southbank Centre. (Link in bio for tickets. Book now to avoid disappointment.)

Niall McDevitt (1967 – 2022) was a psychogeographer-poet who trod the steps of great rebels such as Blake, Rimbaud, and Joyce. On February 21st, the day before his 57th birthday, poets and writers who love McDevitt’s work will introduce each of his four witty, wise, and wild collections. Join us to hear:

– LONDON NATION (2022) introduced by the iconic keeper of lost cultures, Iain Sinclair

– FIRING SLITS (2016) introduced by our own @robertmontgomeryghost and @gretabellamacina

– PORTERLOO (2012) introduced by the award-winning poet, translator, and lecturer James Byrne

– B/W (2010) introduced by the singular poet, musician, and artist MacGillivray (aka Kirsten Norrie)

Tickets are available from the Southbank Centre’s website. . Love to all.–0ilxJqWG_-RxYIv4UPOjOeVAinBoxopFLA
