While Poetry is celebrated around the Isles, there’s plenty to celebrate here in Cornwall.

National Poetry Day:

The Poetry Society and Southbank Centre, London, present National Poetry Day Live from the Clore Ballroom of the Royal Festival Hall.

Join us for a wonderful afternoon of poetry for all ages, including school groups, families and an evening of performances for adults.

Featuring performances from some of the biggest names in poetry, including Julia Donaldson, John Hegley, Daljit Nagra, Kei Miller and Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze.

Several new Poetry Society commissions will also premiere at National Poetry Day Live, including a new film of Marian Allen’s ‘The Wind on the Downs’ and several new Page Fright films, featuring spoken word legends.

This year, National Poetry Day Live has been programmed for the first time by a group of the Poetry Society’s Young Associates – young poets at the start of their careers.


Send the Poetry Point a poem and we’ll publish it here

good luck with yours, and remember ‘write don’t tweet!’ 😉
