“This hugely ambitious project, led by Artistic Director Jude Kelly and Artist in Residence Simon Armitage, will include readings, workshops and discussions with all the poets who were nominated through public voting.

“Never have so many poets and so many languages been together in one place, with each poet contributing a poem in their own language.The poems from each of the 200-plus countries will then be presented together in the World Record Anthology.”
