An evening of poetry with Simon Armitage and Daljit Nagra

November 23, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for this rare dynamic double-bill of two award-winning poets. As well as being two of the most exciting and relevant poets in the UK today Simon Armitage, Oxford Professor of Poetry, and Daljit Nagra, Poet in Residence for Radio 4, are also experienced broadcasters. Daljit Nagra will read from British Museum – a book that asks profound questions of our ethics and responsibilities at a time of great challenge to our sense of national identity. Simon Armitage will read from The Unaccompanied, which documents a world on the brink.

A discussion and Q&A will follow the reading.


This event is part of the series Voices, faces and places.
