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.

    Hi, there is a problem with meetup's ability to process emails and their servers have been down for five days. If you have not received the emailed plans for tomorrow we are meeting at 6.15 in the foyer bar of the venue. If you're joining us after the show we can meet you in the foyer bar at 8pm. The contact number for tomorrow will be 07739 353269.

    It should be a great start to the International Women's Day celebrations.
