Sue Kendrick and Lois Crofton reading from Sleet, Shoots and LeavesLocal poets, Sue Kendrick from Newbold and Lois Crofton from Worthington, will be lauching their first ever poetry anthology at Ashby’s Arts Festival.

Sleet, Shoots and Leaves follows the seasons through the National Forest in verse and photography and was first published in 2009 as a limited edition to family and friends of the poetic duo.

The anthology is now being launched to a wider readership as the pair have joined forces with another local writer and musician, Julie Holland, also from Newbold, who has set much of the verse from the anthology to music and incorporated it into a three hour festival show.

The show, Sleet, Shoots and Leaves takes its name from the anthology and open’s the Arts Festival on Friday, 28th May, 7.30 p.m. at the Lyric Rooms, Ashby de la Zouch.

Sue and Lois will be on hand to take orders for the Sleet, Shoots and Leaves anthology, but if you have an extra special birthday coming up and can’t wait for the Festival, you can order direct from the Folk on the Farm shop.
