This is the final stage of this competition, held annually since 1998, is to find a local poet to hold the honorary title for one year. Hosted by the former Peterborough Poet Laureate for 12-13, Simon Stabler, we are honoured that Benjamin Zephaniah will be on the judging panel for this year’s competition. Throughout the year the Poet Laureate will work with The John Clare Trust and Vivacity Culture and Leisure Trust (inc the library service), and the community to identify opportunities to make creative writing and particularly poetry part of the life of the city, chronicling special events and celebrating the City of Peterborough.
Tickets are free for this event, however you must obtain a free ticket from the box office to allow entry on the day. Key Theatre Bos Office - tel 01733 207239
