Carol Ann Duffy, National Poet Laureate


University of Worcester Staff News

the beesWe are delighted to welcome the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy on Thursday 5 June at 7pm for what will be an intimate evening of poetry and music. An extraordinary poet and a mesmerising performer, she will read from recent collections including aptly The Bees: “Sometimes the bee is Duffy’s subject, sometimes it strays into the poem, or hovers at its edge.
