Carol Ann Duffy & John Sampson

Sun 10 Sep, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £15 (£13 concessions) , approx running time: 60mins

The Poet Laureate and her favourite court musician bring an hour of light and shade, laughter and reflection to Square Chapel. Carol Ann will read from her acclaimed collections, including The World’s Wife, The Bees and other works. Lucid, honest and accessible, her writing explores both everyday experience and our inner worlds in deceptively simple, profoundly resonant poems. Alongside the words, John Sampson takes us on a virtuoso tour through musical highlights of the past 500 years, played on a fascinating collection of period and modern instruments.

Pre-show warm up with poet Keith Hutson (15mins).

We are delighted to be working with The Imperial Crown Hotel as our preferred hotel partner over our Launch Weekend.
