Made In Maryport Free Event Through To The End Of March

A host of free events are still to enjoy in Maryport this month as part of the town’s new cultural offering.

From live music to author talks, a punk poet and a pub quiz, there is plenty happening throughout March.

The events are offered as part of the Made in Maryport project, funded by Historic England as part of the Historic High Streets Cultural Programme and by Maryport Town Council.

Performance poet Attila the Stockbroker will be marking more than 40 years of performing punk poetry at the Tap Tavern in High Street on Thursday, March 23 from 7.30pm. 

The Lifeboat is the venue for a Cumbrian pub quiz with live music on Wednesday, March 29 from 7.30pm.

Teams of three or four are welcome to join quiz host and musician Steve Wharton for an evening celebrating this great county.

The finale, at 7.30pm on Friday, March 31, is a performance by poet Kim Moore at Maryport Town Hall. 

Kim is the co-director of Kendal Poetry Festival and hosts a monthly reading series for Wordsworth Grasmere as well as running writing workshops for young people and adults.

What The Trumpet Taught Me is a collection of vivid snapshots, from her first lessons to music college, then teaching the trumpet in schools and running a brass band, right through to playing in working men’s clubs in a ten-piece soul band.

The events are free but booking is advised.
