The Wordsworth Trust is delighted to welcome Simon Armitage back to Grasmere for his annual summer reading, which he has now been doing for over twenty years. 

Simon has published eleven collections of poetry in total, the first being Zoom! in 1989 and the latest a version of the Middle English poem Pearl.  He also writes extensively for television, radio and theatre and is the author of two novels and three non-fiction best-sellers All Points North, Walking Home and Walking Away.  He is also Professor of Poetry at the University of Sheffield and Oxford University.  This evening he will read a varied selection of his own poems.

Cost: £10, advance booking by telephone is advised as this popular event always sells out. 

Please note that if you wish to purchase tickets or books at the event we will only be able to accept cash payments.
