Venue: Kings Place, Hall One (map here)
Tickets: £9.50 (available here)


To mark our 40th birthday, Index on Censorship is partnering with Poet in the City for a special celebration of Index’s remarkable literary heritage and the continuing role of poetry in free expression.

This evening’s event features poems read by some of Index’s supporters, including acclaimed actors Simon Callow, Janet Suzman and Roger Lloyd Pack, and broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, Chair of Index on Censorship. It will also feature contemporary poets Sasha Dugdale and Sarah Hesketh discussing their work in the context of censorship and threats to free expression.  This is set to be a very special celebration of both Index on Censorship and the power of poetry.
