Alice/Ekphrasis: An evening of poetry inspired by Alice in Wonderland

Poets and actors read from a new anthology of poetry inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

How did Lewis Carroll tap into something that seems so extraordinary and yet so true on every level? At this event, some of our finest poets - Ian Duhig, Luke Wright, Helen Mort, Amali Rodrigo, Abegail Morley, Sasha Dugdale, Chris McCabe, Mona Arshi, Clare Pollard, Robert Seatter, Emer Gillespie, Catherine Smith, and Hollie McNish – read their new poems written to celebrate Alice in Wonderland. Actors also read excerpts from Alice, 150 years old, but timeless.

An anthology of poetry written by poets from all across the UK will is being published to coincide with this event, and all ticket holders will receive a free copy.
