Dodo Modern Poets returns to the New Wimbledon Theatre Studio for a gala evening of poetry and zany wordsmithery as part of the second annual Wimbledon Bookfest.

Aeron Thomas is fresh from an American tour where she wowed audiences with the poetry and stories of her father Dylan Thomas as well as her own excellent verse. Dodo founder Patric Cunnane blends passion, politics, pathos and humour into work that celebrates his Irish roots.
