Celebrate International Women's Day a day early with all five Poet Laureates of the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
For the first time these Poet Laureates are women (and Celts).
This celebratory performance, specially commissioned for WOW - Women of The World, brings all five of them together for their first joint public reading.
Join Carol Ann Duffy (England), Liz Lochhead (Scotland), Gillian Clarke (Wales), Paula Meehan (Ireland), and Sinead Morrisey (Northern Ireland) for an extraordinary night.
Please book your ticket in advance (it is sure to sell out) via the Southbank Centre's website: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/wow-laureates-night-80279
Tickets are £12 or £15 and the performance starts at 6.30pm. We will be going out for a drink along the Southbank afterwards if you would like to join us.
