Ticket price

Tim Dee and James Cook from the BBC Poetry Unit in Bristol present a celebration of the most requested poems in the history of the Radio 4 broadcast Poetry Please with the help of readings by actress Pippa Haywood. This unique event marks the publication of Faber’s Poetry Please anthology, and tells the story of the world’s longest-running poetry programme, through live readings, audience requests and recorded material from the show’s 34-year archive of our best-loved poems.

BBC Radio 4’s Poetry Please is the longest-running broadcast of verse anywhere in the world. First aired in 1979, the programme, a request show that broadcasts to one million listeners a week, has become a unique record of the country’s best-loved poems over the decades since its inception.
