About this Event

Described as ‘the Auden of his generation” and “as popular as Philip Larkin.”, Simon Armitage’s well-deserved appointment as UK Poet Laureate puts him in the footsteps of Ted Hughes and Carol Ann Duffy. He plans to use his honorarium to fund a prize or event promoting poetry on Climate Change, insisting that all art forms need to react to this situation: “It is unignorable…it is a subject-matter fit for our age.” He will read from his latest collection of poetry, Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic, along with others from his varied career as a musician, poet and playwright.
