Event details

Join us for an exploration of WH Auden in words and music.

York musicians, poets and performers present works written and inspired by W.H. Auden, the 'Picasso of modern poetry' born in Bootham, York, in 1907.

Widely recognised as a leader of the British avant-garde, Auden experimented ceaselessly with form and subject matter.  Defiantly anti-establishment, he was both controversial and influential in his views on politics, morals, love, and religion.

Expect the unexpected!

Please be seated by 7.20pm.

This event is curated by Navigators Art & Performance.

This year’s Festival includes a number of events featuring York Trailblazers. Look out for 'Five Decades of LGBT+ Activism:  Stuart Feather in conversation'; Anne Lister’s Loves’ and 'Trailblazer: Yorkshire female archaeologist’.
