National Poetry Day… 6th October

Poets from all corners of Bradford have come together to make their debut on the Big Screen to celebrate National Poetry Day with a series of readings set to film.

Readers young and old came forward to a special filmed session hosted by Bradford Libraries where they recited  both old favourites and their own work.

These films will be screened all day on Thursday 6 October on the Bradford’s Big Screen and then they can be seen throughout our general programming on the screen until the end of the year.

If you can’t get down to City Park you can also see them here.  The films are listed in alphabetical order of the poetry reader’s surname.

We’d like to say a very big thankyou to Dionne Hood at Bradford Libraries for working with us and all the wonderful poetry readers for sharing their performances with us.
