Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

An Evening with Andy Humphrey and Guests

An upper room in the Royal Oak on Goodramgate was the venue for the launch of Andy’s first full-length poetry collection, A Long Way To Fall. The place was bursting at the seams when I arrived just after 7.30 p.m. and more people squeezed in later; a tribute to Andy’s popularity and many hats.  A great deal more about Andy can be gleaned from his own website http://andyhumphrey1971.webs.com/

There was much to enjoy on this fine if rather muggy evening in York. Guest performers included poets Ann Heath, Tanya Nightingale and James Nash and there were musical numbers from Rob Nightingale and Union Jill, all well known faces on the local scene.

Hearing Andy read is always a great pleasure and the audience listened with rapt attention to the poems he chose on this occasion.

Ripon Writers’ Group is looking forward to welcoming Andy and other members of York Writers to our showcase/open mic event on Tuesday, 9th July.
