To launch the May 2016 season and the May Bristol800 Weekender – two days debating the practical aspects of creating utopia – the Festival of Ideas commissioned 15 leading poets to each write a new poem on the utopian theme. They present their work tonight, talk about what inspired them and join the debate on creating perfect worlds. Hosted by historian and presenter David Olusoga. The poets and speakers include: Fleur Adcock, Dean Atta, Helen Dunmore, Anna Hoghton, Matthew Hollis, Sarah Howe, Nick Laird, Tim Liardet, Andrew McMillan, Hollie McNish, Daljit Nagra, Ruth Padel, Jo Shapcott, Michael Symmons Roberts and Jane Yeh.
