An evening of sonnets and bonnets.
Park up at Kenwood Hall Hotel and enjoy a socially distanced night of live poetry from the comfort of your car seat, headlined by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage.
Simon will be premiering two new works commissioned by Off the Shelf and reading from his latest book Magnetic Field: The Marsden Poems, a collection evoking a sense of his beloved West Yorkshire.
“The poet laureate rarely read as a child – it was the view from his house at the edge of the moors that shaped his poetic vision” – The Guardian
