Join us for a celebration of poetry in the beautiful, angel-haunted space of Manchester Cathedral. Is a poem always a prayer? Could writing a poem be a pilgrimage? It doesn’t matter whether you believe in God or not, just listen to the way words splinter and crack as they seek to express the inexpressible. The nineteenth prize-giving event includes readings from this year’s winners, competition judge Malika Booker (award-winning poet, storyteller, theatre maker and vibrant performer), Andrew Rudd (Cathedral Poet in Residence) and Charlie Annis (previous winner), as well as music and conversation.
