Belfast’s Home of Poetry – October

The Linen Hall Library has been always known as the home of poetry in Belfast, holding some of the most significant works of local poetry, from the historic works of Robert Burns to Belfast poets Louis MacNeice and John Hewitt.

The ‘Home of Poetry’ is a special programme curated by the Linen Hall Library to celebrate the great poets of the past while pushing the boundaries by hosting new voices and themes.

This October, for the ‘Home of Poetry’ we have organised a number of events and workshops, that will explore historic and more contemporary themes. 

For a full list of events running in October, see the Linen Hall website below.
