The poets Jane Draycott, Lavinia Greenlaw and Matthew Francis will also be participating. A programme of cultural events associated with the conference is taking shape, including a season of medievalist films at the independent cinema, HOME Manchester, and a full dramatic production of Lavinia Greenlaw's A Double Sorrow in Manchester Cathedral. There will be a celebration of the work of the author Alan Garner, featuring an in-conversation event with Alan. As a city Manchester offers a wealth of neo-gothic architecture, much of it under the direct influence of Augustus Pugin. There will be opportunities to visit the sumptuous neo-gothic John Rylands Library, and the Ford Madox Brown murals in the Alfred Waterhouse-designed Manchester Town Hall.
