Five London poets live for free under the Dome

Poet in the City has commissioned five of London’s greatest poets to lift the lid on St Paul's 

They'll reimagine St Paul's history and its place in the contemporary public imagination.

Join us  the first ever performances of these new works spanning first encounters and famous names to revolution and regeneration in a spectacular free event under the Dome.

The Poet in the City event on Monday 26 September also launches an audio exhibition, which physically maps these new poetic perspectives onto the St Paul’s canvas.

Hosted by spoken word saviour Laurie Bolger, you're welcome to this unique, totally free, opportunity to hear live poetry in this iconic setting and lay the roots for its future.
