One of our best-loved and most acclaimed poets, Simon Armitage has been inspiring readers for twenty-five years. Since the arrival of his spectacular debut Zoom!, he has published numerous award-winning collections of poetry, non-fiction, novels, plays and translations. To mark the publication of Paper Aeroplane: Selected Poems 1989-2014, a new gathering of work from throughout his career, he will be reading in the magical setting of Wilton's Music Hall, and speaking to broadcaster and presenter Melvyn Bragg. Join us for a unique evening to celebrate the power of poetry and the spoken word.
