Selected poems penned during these events will feature in a number of empty shop windows in and around Blackpool town centre. This year’s theme for National Poetry Day is Messages and artwork to accompany the chosen poems have been created by award winning illustrators and filmmakers Emily& Anne, incorporating ideas around unusual ways to send messages.


Our National Poetry Day celebration will begin at The Grundy Art Gallery with a steamy hot chocolate and an opportunity to visit the NEON exhibition.
