Luke Wright – Poet Laureate

Performed on 4 October, 2018


Tickets for this event are now on sale from the Shelley Theatre only and can be obtained here.

Luke Wright is on a mission to reinvent his poetry, to unite rather than divide. But can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? And just who are these previously laureled rogues? Luke delves into the murky world of poets laureate past, while serving up a sparkling set of new poems.
