Carol Ann Duffy has been a bold, original voice and one of Britain’s best-loved poets since the publication of Standing Female Nude in 1985; she has subsequently won every major poetry prize in the UK, published collections that have collectively sold more than one million copies worldwide and was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009.  

Coinciding with and supporting the 10th anniversary of Independent Bookshop Week, SHORE TO SHORE sees the Poet Laureate and her chosen fellow artists undertaking a major national tour to perform their work and to celebrate communities with independent bookshops at their heart. 

Shore to Shore: Celebrating Poetry and Community with the Laureate and Friends will bring audiences an unforgettable evening featuring some of the finest voices in contemporary British poetry.
