Adrian Rodda

Adrian Rodda, a retired English teacher, reads his verses as part of the programme offered by the Cornish Folk music group, An Gof. He has also given talks to several Old Cornwall Societies and taken people on guided walks around the areas mentioned in the tales, offering readings en route. Adrian has been placed in several poetry competitions with Gorsedh Kernow and last year won the Jack Evans Cup.

Established in 2010, Penzance Literary Festival has grown into one of the UK's favourite festivals for authors and visitors.
