A poet and artist from a village near Pocklington presented an evening of poetry and art in Leeds, which has received high praise.

Michael Hildred, of Bolton, was invited by Leeds Combined Arts (LCA) to host the event at the HEART Centre in Headingley. LCA project co-ordinator, Carol Downing, said: “There were some lovely comments from people who had attended, including a couple of newer younger members.” Comments on the night included: “Really enjoyed last night’s performance” and “inspiring.” The event follows Michael’s success in the YorkMix poetry competition this year, where one of his poems was commended.
