Poetry International is a bold and inspiring festival of poetry, film and spoken word. For, after all, ‘at the touch of love everyone becomes a poet’ (Plato).
Over a week there are readings, music, poetry films, translations, new commissions, free events and innovative spoken-word performances throughout Southbank Centre, including at The Poetry Library at Royal Festival Hall and the gardens, bars and the public space that surrounds our venues.
Poetry International was founded by Ted Hughes in 1967 and takes place every other year.
