The Concrete World of Edwin Morgan: Opening Event

Raise a glass to one of the most imaginative poets of the past decades at the launch of our exhibition celebrating the life and work of Scottish poet Edwin Morgan.

As part of the exhibition, we’ve commissioned four LGBTQ+ writers to write new work.

Come along to this opening event to hear performances by Chris Beckett, Keith Jarrett and Richard Scott.

Find out more about Morgan’s concrete poetry and see how a new generation of poets have reimagined his contribution to 20th- and 21st-century poetry.
