Isle of Man poet Thomas Edward Brown to be celebrated

The life and work of an Isle of Man poet, Thomas Edward Brown, will be celebrated at a special event in Douglas.

It will be held on the 180th anniversary of his birth, 5 May, at the Henry Bloom Noble Library.

Carol Little, Pam Evans and John Jennaugh will read pieces of his work.

Tickets for the event, which has been organised in conjunction with Friends of Manx National Heritage, are free but must be collected in advance.

Librarian Jan Macartney described Brown as "a poet whose sensitive use of language evokes vivid and lasting images of the Isle of Man".
