Next Generation Poets 2014 with Kate Tempest, Mark Waldron, Patience Agbabi and Warsan Shire

Wednesday 10th December 2014 6:30pm - 8:15pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join us to celebrate the third Next Generation Poets promotion with a special performance event featuring rising stars Mark Waldron and Mercury Prize-nominated Kate Tempest (pictured), with special guest appearances from Patience Agbabi and Warsan Shire.

Every ten years, the Poetry Book Society selects twenty of the most exciting poetic talents to celebrate as part of their Next Generation. With former recipients including Alice Oswald and Paul Farley, as well as Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy -- who return as patrons for this year's selection -- this is a promotion as authoritative as it is insightful as it highlights the poets to watch out for in 2014 and beyond.

This is an evening of live poetry at its most vital, with artists working at the leading edge of the form.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Tickets: £5 per person. Simply add the required number to the basket below.

Please note that no physical tickets will be issued; the email despatch confirmation you receive will be proof of your booking.
