Poet in the City presents a visual-poetic explosion as part of the Kings Place Festival. Four exciting new poets: Declan Ryan, Daisy LaFarge, Kayo Chinongyi and Ralf Webb, will have their work illustrated live by a set of dynamic emerging artists.

This is a unique way to experience poetry and see a fantastic fusion of words and images come to life before your eyes…watch as poems are given surprising new dimensions, and the fourth wall is well and truly broken!
