The P&P Team

Poets & Players is a non-profit making organisation run by seven enthusiastic volunteers. Apart from the occasional fundraiser all our events are free. We are grateful to Arts Council England for funding.

The P&P team are: (in alphabetical order):

Suzanne Batty, Paul Bellamy, David Borrott, Simon Haworth, Janet Rogerson, Peter Viggers and Jeffrey Wainwright.

There are a number of individuals and institutions that we would like to thank for their continued support and collaboration:

  • Chris Davies for his musical contributions to Poets & Players
  • Lucy Viggers for her work on our bookstall
  • Ian Carrinton and the International Anthony Burgess Foundation
  • Cathy Bolton and the Manchester Literature Festival
  • John McAuliffe at the University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing
  • Kelly Prause at Royal Northern College of Music
  • Steve Meade and Sunny Baek at the Manchester Jazz Festival

  1. Hi, I’m part of a band called The Amazing Clouds. We’d be interested in playing at one of your events. You can see a selection of videos on our Facebook page –
    Could you let me know how to apply. Many thanks.

    Is the upcoming P&P´s poetry competition international, i.e. open to submission from outside the UK?
