The Fitzwilliam Museum will be host to T S Eliot prize and Costa Book Award shortlisted poet, Sean Borodale, for an evening of art and poetry on Tuesday 4 March. The evening is part of the events series Writing Lives, which makes connections between writing and art. The events invite professional writers to talk about how exhibitions or artworks in museums collections have influenced them, or how it sparks a connection with their work. Poet Sean Borodale is a writer who often draws inspiration from the natural world, and he will be talking about the way this reflects on the work of John Craxton as an artist who was inspired in much the same way. The evening will include a viewing of the exhibition A World of Private Mystery: John Craxton RA (1922 - 2009) and Sean will also give a reading of his poetry.

Tickets are £8.00 (£5.00 concessions and Friends of the Fitzwilliam Museum) and available from: 01223 332904 or email: For more information and the schedule please see the events page.
