About this event

Nottingham Playhouse is the place to be on National Poetry Day.
Hosted by Ben Norris and featuring performances from a frankly ridiculous line-up including Dizraeli, Liz Berry, Caroline Bird, Vanessa Kisuule, Debris Stevenson, Bohdan Piasecki, Will Harris, Georgina Wilding, Jamie Thrasivoulou and Michael Southan, A Quite Enormous Poetry Event promises to be just that: enormous. And doubtless, very, very good.

The main stage show is preceded by several hours of poetic amusements and distractions in the shape of The Poetry Funfair, curated by Becky Cullen. Kicking off with a free poetry workshop at 5pm, and a chance to see films produced as part of the Poetry Pulse project, we celebrate the National Poetry Day theme of truth with a fanfare of activities, including guess-the-weight-of-the-truth, poetry hook-a-duck, a poetry fortune teller, juggler, and ghost train.

Roll Up! Roll Up!
