Simon Armitage – 70 Notices

Off the Shelf has commissioned the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, to write a new piece in celebration of the Peak District National Park’s 70th anniversary this year.  The new work, 70 Notices, will be read to Kinder Scout – music by Barnsley musician, Lyndon Scarfe, at the Crucible on Sunday 31 Oct, 5pm.

We went with Simon into the Peak District to film him reading fragments of the new work in the landscape and to hear more about his motivation to write about the natural world.

Join us for a varied poetry reading by Simon Armitage which will include Lyndon Scarfe performing 70 Notices live on the Crucible stage: https://www.offtheshelf.org.uk/event/simon-armitage-and-70-notices/
