Scottish Poetry Library

The Scottish Poetry Library is a unique national resource and advocate for the art of poetry. We are passionately committed to bringing the pleasures and benefits of poetry to as wide an audience as possible. Physically and virtually, the Scottish Poetry Library’s doors are open. 
Ticket Policies
  • We ask ticket buyers to pay the Eventbrite ticket booking fee, included in your ticket price if you purchase online, as otherwise the cost of selling tickets online is prohibitive for us as a charity.  If you do not wish to pay the ticket fee, you are most welcome to purchase your tickets in person at the SPL reception desk any time before your event, provided it is not sold out.  Tickets purchased in person will not incur a booking fee.  
  • If you need a carer/companion to help you access this event, they will be eligible for a free ticket to the event.  Please contact
  • We are unable to provide refunds for events if you cannot attend.  If we have to cancel an event due to unforeseen emergencies such as extreme weather conditions, we will refund all ticket buyers for the full cost of their tickets.
  • Concession tickets apply to children (under 15), students (with valid matriculation card), Young Scot card holders, Senior Citizens, Disability (Carers go free), Claimants (Jobseekers Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Housing Benefit), NHS employees (with proof of employment).
  • Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
We hope your ticket booking proceeds smoothly, but if you have any problems or questions, please contact us for assistance.

The Scottish Poetry Library aims to be as accessible as possible for all users.
