Poet in the City and Archives for London have commissioned new poetry from seven leading UK poets to uncover the stories of London’s archives.

At the Freemasons, rich in historical detail, a place we think we know but rarely understand, perceptions have been overturned through poetry. Award winning poet David Harsent travels with unexpected, celebrated and long forgotten Masons, lending his unique poetic voice to an array of compelling characters, and shedding new light on this fascinating archive.

David Harsent will be joined by archivist Susan Snell, who will look in detail at the history of the Freemasons.
