History comes alive with poetry


Luton poets are set to travel back in time to meet and perform as their historical counterparts at Luton Central Library on Saturday (August 30).

Luton poet laureate Mary Emeji said: “This event will feature great minds like Sylvia Plath, Thomas Gray, Lady Mary Chudleigh and Emily Bronte . . . and stretch back as far as 70 BC to discover ancient Roman poet Vergil.”

The Luton Poetry Society founder added: “This annual occasion – in full costume – has proved to be not only theatrical but also very informative as we research and read more about the great writers who laid the foundations for what we do now. All poets are welcome to come and perform with us.”
