National Poetry Day is the annual celebration of all things poetical and this year the University Library invites you to join us for a week of activities including a poetry walk around our beautiful campus!

Poetry Day 16

The world as we know it today is so very busy, and we are in such heavy demand from emails, telephone calls, assignments, social media……we felt it was only fitting to take some time out from the daily stresses and reflect on something a little more relaxing!

On Thursday 6th October we invite you to take some time out from your daily MESSAGES and escape with us on a poetry walk around campus.

The walk will meet in four different locations to allow students and staff to join the group at different times to suit your lunch hour…

12:00   The University Library foyer
12:30   The Sunken Garden
13:00   Durning Centre entrance
13:30   Sports Centre entrance

At each location a poem, around the 2016 theme of messages, will be read aloud and there will be opportunity to discuss. You can even take inspiration from your surroundings and have a go writing your own poem…or just bring along an existing favourite to share!

This is a FREE event, no booking required, just drop in (and out) as you need to!

NB: Unfortunately we cannot predict the weather so please dress accordingly on the day and you are very welcome to bring/eat your lunch with us too!
