About the event

Do you have a poem that has been a friend to you? How did you first meet? What do you mean to each other?

The Poetry Exchange invites you to come and talk about a poem that’s been a friend to you over a cup of tea and biscuits. At the end, we’ll make a special recording of your chosen poem as a gift for you.

At 3.30pm, join us in The Story Exchange to read and listen to some poems together. Bring along a poem that’s been a friend to you, or look out for poems around The Story Museum over the weekend.

Suitable for families and for individuals aged 16+
