An Evening with Alyson Hallett and Friends

On 13 June, join us for an evening of poetry, glaciers and song as we celebrate the publication of Alyson Hallett’s collection of poems End of the Glacier, inspired by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s life changing trip to Switzerland and the Grindelwald Glacier in 1949. Joining Alyson as she reads from the collection will be Peter Nienow, Professor in Glaciology at Edinburgh University and celebrated singer Mhairi Lawson.
