Description: Award-winning writer Simon Armitage plans to walk from Minehead to Land’s End in September along the northern half of the SW Coast Path without a penny in his pocket.

How will he pay his way?

By giving poetry readings en route in village halls, churches, pubs, schools, galleries and living rooms in return for his board and lodgings.

Simon plans to set off from Minehead on the SW Coast Path just after the August Bank Holiday and hopes to reach Land’s End on September 17, having earned enough to pay his fare to the Isles of Scilly for a final reading.

But he’s taking a detour south, to read at Calstock Arts.

Donations to Simon on the night will enable him to finish his walk.
