Matt Black

Dear Fellow Bloggers,

the week before last on a Thursday I went to the little town of Belper to go and watch the Derbyshire Poet Laureate. His name is Matt Black. The first session he did a lot of what must be his old stuff as he read most of  it out from memory. It was all so funny I nearly cried. The second session he did about an actual historical character called Belper Joe who lived in Belper. This was slightly more serious but still very good.

If you are interested in his blog it can be found at Matt Black’s Blog

He also has his own website at

You probably think I’m plugging him because he’s a friend but to be honest I’ve only seen him a few times but each time he has been excellent.
