Valda and Chris, the Domestic Scene

23rd October 2021

Valda Grieve was once described as “small and compact with bright hennaed hair and possessed (of) a pugnacious spirit that may have come from her Cornish origins. She was forthright and outspoken, nor did she mince her words, which were often bluntly Anglo-Saxon!” (Stanley Roger Green, A Clamjamfray of Poets).

Valda’s extraordinary character and the life she shared with Hugh MacDiarmid at Brownsbank, is explored through the letters she wrote in this public talk with Beth Junor, editor of The Letters of Valda Grieve (Edinburgh: Word Power Books, 2007), and the artists, Alexander Moffat, Ruth Nicol and Alan Riach.

Free Entry but donations to MacDiarmid’s Brownsbank welcome.
