To celebrate this year’s National Poetry Day on Arran an evening of poetry and music was held at the Brodick Bar.
More than 50 people packed into the pub to hear local poets reading well known pieces and from their own work.
Local poet Tim Pomeroy said:‘It was amazing and gratifying that there are so many poetry lovers about.
‘We had six principle readers including Jason Watts,Diana Dunn,David Underdown,Cicely Gill and Alison Prince and myself.
‘Nine invited secondary readers brought a mix of their own and ‘weel-kent’ poems.
‘Especially appreciated were contributions from Katharine O’Donnelly and Chris Jenks from the High School.’
