John Burnside, winner of the Whitbread Prize for Poetry 2000, will be headlining Heaventree's Godiva Festival debut.

John Burnside is one of Scotland's best-loved living poets. He has published eight books of poetry, including The Asylum Dance, which won the 2000 Whitbread Poetry Award, and most recently The Light Trap, which was shortlisted for the 2002 TS Eliot prize. He has also written four novels, one of which, The Mercy Boys, won the 1999 Encore Award.

Following the reading by John Burnside, which will start at 7pm, there will be a book signing session and an opportunity to meet the author. After this the evening will continue with a blend of open mic slots and invited readings.
