What’s On

At Seven we aim to bring the best in local and regional performing arts, and great talent from further afield, plus a diverse range of interesting and entertaining films from all over the world.

Events are held in Seven’s courtyard or venue depending on the event and /or weather. The venue is currently laid out cabaret style in a socially distanced format. Events are by ticket only or on a Pay What You Feel basis – these are hard times for musicians and artists so please give generously.

Chapel Allerton Arts Festival presents An Evening of Poetry

28th August 2018 - 7:30 pm

Photo : Owen Lowery

We are excited to be bringing to Seven Arts the following poets to read from their works :

“I am a poet and a writer whose latest project is entitled ‘Transitions’ in which transformation and transition are explored from a personal and wider viewpoint” . Owen is C2 tetraplegic and says that the subject of transitions is of great relevance given that his physical disability occurred when he was 18 due to a sudden spinal injury. Owen has appeared regularly on radio and television.

A local poet who is well know nationally, Ian has written seven books the latest being ‘The Blind Roadmaker’. Ian has won the Forward Best Poem prize once and The National Poetry Competition twice.

Niall is another local poet but comes originally from South Uist. ‘Moontide’, his first collection was named inaugural winner of the Edwin Morgan Poetry Prize and he has also received the Saltire First Book of the Year.

Kath runs a poetry discussion group here at Seven Arts. She’s been published in anthologies by Write Outloud, Paper Swans Press and South Bank Poetry. In 2017 she won the Walter Swan Trust Poetry Competition at Ilkley Literature Festival
