Join The Reader from the comfort of your own surroundings for this special afternoon celebrating one of the UK’s best-loved poets.
Experience the joy of Shared Reading – live and aloud – in this online event where they’ll be exploring the work of Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, together. At the end of the session, Simon himself will join them to read and take part in a live Q&A.
If you’ve never experienced Shared Reading before, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Their friendly Reader Leaders will guide you as we begin by reading from a selection of Simon’s poems.
They’ll talk and reflect as they read and as with all Shared Reading groups, there’s no pressure to read aloud or speak. How you choose to experience Shared Reading is up to you.
