Murray Lachlan Young’s poetry career began in the underground poetry/cabaret nights of mid-nineties London. Word of his unique style of writing and performing soon spread, and he was signed by EMI in a recording deal that saw him dubbed, for a while, the ‘Million Pound Poet’. He has appeared regularly on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, Radio 5 Live and Test Match Special. Since 2011 Murray has been resident poet at BBC Radio 6 Music and has collaborated with artists including Morcheeba.

Poet in the City is one of the UK’s leading poetry organisations. Their mission is to bring poets and communities closer together. They do this through producing large-scale multi-disciplinary events and projects that use poetry to animate moments of cultural and social change, platform marginalised voices and create dramatic poetry experiences in arts venues and everyday spaces.

Culture Mile is a new home for contemporary culture in the ancient heart of London’s working capital. The City of London Corporation, together with the Barbican, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London Symphony Orchestra and the Museum of London, are bringing the area to life with imaginative collaborations and exciting events.
