Performance poet Luke Wright on Friday 8 May 3.30pm - 5.30pm at Cleckheaton Library. Luke Wright writes bawdy bar room ballads about small town tragedies and Westminster rogues. His fast paced, witty poems are crammed full of yummy mummies, debauched Tory grandees, maudlin commuters and leering tabloid paps. His live shows are enjoyed by thousands of people across the world every year, where he mixes the wistful with the downright comic to take audiences on an incredible emotional journey.

Who-ology   Saturday 9 May 2015  3.30-5.30pm  Cleckheaton Library  Tickets £5 each

From William Hartnell to Peter Capaldi, Yorkshire writer Mark Wright loves writing about his favourite Time Lord and in this interactive session, Whovians can celebrate all things Doctor Who, including a Q&A session and book signing.  A regular contributor to Doctor Who Magazine and The Essential Doctor Who, Mark has written many audiobooks, short stories, comic strips and novels for world-famous characters such as Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures, the Power Rangers and Blake’s 7. He is the co-author (along with Cavan Scott) of the Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling Doctor Who miscellany, Who-ology, and its follow up, Wit, Wisdom and Timey-Wimey Stuff. Mark’s latest books for reluctant teen readers, The Corridor, Deadly Mission and Ghost Bell are now available.  Suitable for all.
