An event featuring all five Poet Laureates of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. For the first time these Poet Laureates are all women (and Celts). This celebratory performance, specially commissioned for WOW – Women of The World Festival, brings all five of them together for their first joint public reading. Carol Ann Duffy (England), Liz Lochhead (Scotland), Gillian Clarke (Wales), Paula Meehan (Ireland), and Sinead Morrissey (Northern Ireland) will all read together for one extraordinary night.
