Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke:
Poetry Reading

Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke give a one-off reading on the relationship between poetry and the natural world.

Carol Ann Duffy has been a bold and original voice in British poetry since the publication of Standing Female Nude in 1985. Since then she has won every major poetry prize in the United Kingdom and sold over one million copies of her books around the world. She was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009.

Gillian Clarke was the National Poet of Wales between 2008 and 2016. She is Wales’s best-loved contemporary poet, one of the major poets of our endangered environment, whose most recent work – Roots Home – features seven vivid essay-meditations, informed by (among others) Dylan Thomas, George Herbert and W. B. Yeats, exploring the ways in which poetry bears witness to what is and what might be, presence and transcendence in a threatened world.

This event will take place in the Garden Tent on Saturday 26 June between 3.15pm and 4.15pm.

Tickets cost £14.00 per person. Please visit the programme page to book tickets.
