From ballads to blank verse and sonnets to slam battles, this event will explore how we take poetry from the page and bring it to life through performance and discussion. Curated by leading poetry society Live Canon, each week offers a platform to guests from different parts of the verse world to come together and share their work in an exciting and enlightening way.
