Simon Armitage’s annual Grasmere reading is one of the highlights of the Wordsworth Trust’s calendar.  One of their most popular poets, Simon's readings are unforgettable for the way in which he transforms ordinary experience through everyday language. With his streetwise humour, his inventive use of conversational speech and an eye for the ordinary detail, Simon has brought a whole new generation to poetry. Whether he is reading surreal fables or taut lyrics, his work contains something for everyone.

Simon Armitage’s Grasmere readings always sell out so please book early to ensure a place.
