Laureate’s Library Tour
Poetry, conversation and a celebration of libraries – a University of Cambridge online event
‘I want to celebrate the physical space of libraries and take my work back into places that have given me so much.’
Join Yorkshireman and Poet Laureate Simon Armitage and special guest Imtiaz Dharker, Cambridge University Library’s former poet-in-residence (previously involved in a Leeds Phil & Lit grant-supported event), to celebrate historic poetry archives in this unique free event live-streamed from the Rare Books Reading Room at Cambridge University Library.

The Society makes grants both to individuals and to organisations in support of cultural and scientific activities which increase innovation, outreach and diversity in Leeds and its immediate area. It also supports local museums and galleries and publications relating to the city.
Since 1819, the Phil & Lit has been inviting the people of Leeds to hear from knowledgeable and entertaining speakers. Many are leaders in their field of science, arts or current affairs. We also hold an annual Science Fair and organise occasional visits.
