Premieres on 16 May at 7pm, on Charleston’s YouTube channel

Poet, playwright and former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy curates an evening of poetry on the theme of the environment, and the artistic responses triggered by the current climate crisis.

Featuring readings from poet, artist and Chancellor of Newcastle University Imtiaz Dharker, Ella Duffy, winner of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2010, and former National Poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke, and as well as a performance from Carol Ann Duffy herself.

As a charity that receives no public funding, the cancellation of Charleston Festival and our current closure is financially devastating for Charleston. As you enjoy this event, please consider making a donation to Charleston’s Emergency Appeal.
