A ukulele player, a trumpeter and two poets, including outgoing poet-in-residence of Keats House, John Hegley, performed at Keats Community Library last Thursday.

Mr Hegley, who was poet-in-residence in 2012, sang, danced and recited poetry for an audience of more than 50 people.

Also appearing was trumpet player Chris Dowding and ukulele player Jane Ireland. Elizabeth Hansford also spoke about the comic side of Keats.

Steven Bobasch, chairman of the library trustees, said: “People had a great time. There was lots of audience participation.”
