National Poetry Day

« Back to the Bradford Big Screen page

 

Bradford poets go on location to celebrate National Poetry Day 2017.

Poets from across Bradford District went on location reciting their own verse which was filmed in iconic places across the city to mark this year’s National Poetry Day.

The films were shown throughout the day on the 28th September on the Big Screen in City Park and  we will continue to screen them for the rest of the year. If you don’t catch the films on the big screen you can enjoy them here on the website.

This project is run in partnership with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford Libraries. We’d like to say a very big thank you to Dionne Hood, Development Officer for Reading and Stock at Bradford Libraries,  filmmaker Richard Alexander and all the poets who were instrumental in making National Poetry Day on the big screen happen for 2017.
