National Poetry Day!

National Poetry Day is upon us again! So channel your creative literary genius and start penning poetry. This year the theme will be water – drawing inspiration from Coleridge’s mariner’s famous cry “Water, water, everywhere.”

Last year National Poetry Day reached a stonking 50 million people, for 24 hours. Let’s make that number even bigger this year! Come down to Redbridge Central Library and share your poems with us. We will try and feature a few of them on here, so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

Don’t worry you don’t have to be a professional; we want to hear from everybody. You don’t even have to write a poem, you can just bring along a water themed one you love.

We will be hosting an Open Mic Poetry night in celebration of the day. Come and experience the pleasure of reading to an audience using a microphone, or just sit and listen to the beautiful words being read to you. A secret guest poet will also be reading for your enjoyment…

This event is will be taking place on 3 October and welcomes all ages. Free Admission. Starting time will be 6.30 pm.

Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford, Essex, IG1 1EA

Booking is essential, to book your slot to read, call Rose on 020 8708 9066 or email

This is a wonderful day, one that is not to be missed!
