Long-time friend of ILF and newly appointed Poet Laureate Simon Armitage opens the 2019 festival.

Simon will be reading from his latest collection, Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic, which features some of the hundreds of poems he has written for various projects, commissions, collaborations and events.

They vary from single poems, such as Zodiac T Shirt, written to be performed at the launch of Beck’s Song Reader, to a suite of poems written to commemorate Branwell Brontë’s bicentenary and the six poems commissioned by ILF to form the Stanza Stones trail.
