A silver lined 25th year

Our 25th year has truly been celebratory and silver lined. From September 2016 to September 2017 we have made space and time for reflections, unearthing and showcasing our history, and reconnecting with people who have helped us grow from a grassroots project in the humblest of premises to a Recognised Collection with over 20 staff housed in a beautiful multi award winning building.

Thoughts on Brand New Ancients

Kate Tempest’s Brand New Ancients pushes the idea of what poetry can be, telling a complete story through verse rather than serving as a collection of individual poems. It’s the kind of story that deserves to be read all in one go, preferably with tea, and lose yourself into the world of these characters whose lives intersect in ways that are recognisable to the reader.
