Luke Wright: Poet Laureate

5 Feb 2019

A new Poet Laureate is due to be announced in 2019 and Wright’s up for it. He’s on a mission to write poems to unite a divided nation – a nation riven by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet really represent a nation? Following a sell-out run in Edinburgh, Luke Wright returns to Brighton Festival with Poet Laureate. Come and witness him put his case across with big-hearted poems that reflect his 20th year as a gigging poet. Already a Fringe First and Stage Award-winner, could this be the gig that gets him THE gig? Can he pull it off?
