National Poetry Day 2017

September 28

When is National Poetry Day 2017?
Thursday 28 September 2017 – a little earlier than usual, because we are working closely with the BBC and Hull City of Culture on a celebration that will ensure still more are involved closely in enjoying, discovering and sharing poetry, all year round.

What is the theme of National Poetry Day 2017?

The theme for National Poetry Day 2017 will be Freedom.

Who can put on an event?

Anyone. We welcome events of all shapes and sizes, whether from individuals, groups or organisations. If you used our downloaded logos or posters, take pictures and put them on social media with the hashtag #nationalpoetryday.

What does it cost?

It’s FREE. We invited all to list any public event  on the map on our Join In page. You are welcome to charge for your event. We ran a schools competition and gave away lots of goody bags: we will do this again in 2017 so sign up now to be sure of being included.
