Simon Armitage: Never Good with Horses


We welcome the Poet Laureate - the recipient of numerous prizes and awards,
including the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry and the PEN Prize for Translation.
He has published over a dozen poetry collections, including Magnetic Field: the
Marsden Poems, and acclaimed medieval translations of Sir Gawain and the Green
Knight and The Owl and the Nightingale. A regular broadcaster, he presents the
popular BBC Radio 4 series The Poet Laureate has Gone to His Shed. An award-winning
dramatist, Simon also writes, records and performs with the band LYR and has
received an Ivor Novello Award for his song writing. His latest book assembles
his song lyrics for the first time and he’ll be talking about and reading from this
and his poetry collections.
