The Lost Lectures


Carol reads through a series of selected pieces, giving us a broad cross-section of her life’s work. She also tells us about the inspiration behind some of her most iconic poems. At times humorous, at times heartbreaking, her body of work captures the extremities of human emotion. Soulful viewing and a must see for poetry lovers and budding bards.


Speaker Carol Ann Duffy

Carol Ann is the current poet Laureate of the UK. A revered artist whose work focuses on the rich fantasy life and feats of imagination that underly the everyday and the banal. A highly resourceful poet, her work draws inspiration from everything, from lovers, to onions.

She will be joining us to read through a series of selected pieces in this rarely intimate setting. The readings will be interspersed with personal reflections by Carol. Expect her to enlighten us on the process of composition, the reception of her pieces and (if we’re lucky) perhaps some reflections on one of her more famous fans: the queen.
