Poetry Periscope

poetry periscope st pancras

St Pancras International welcomes the Poetry Periscope as it reaches the last stop of its year long, national tour!

The Poetry Periscope will reside in St Pancras for the next three months, allowing commuters and visitors the chance to enjoy a host of poetry from Els Moors, Jackie Kay and Jan Wagner (among many more) as they pass through the station.

The Poetry Periscope reminds us who we are and what we would like to be, regardless of where we come from, through the power of poetry. To illustrate this Piána na ulici (Pianos on the Street), The Poetry Society, and the European Literature Festival have carefully selected recordings of poems from 30 European cultures, to highlight the importance of acknowledging our own feelings.

The now, St Pancras blue, instalment was first seen in the British Library last spring and has since travelled the length of the country and is now returning to St Pancras.

The Poetry Periscope features both classic and upcoming poets from across Europe with the option of listening in their native language, they will be inspiring travellers from Monday 27th February until late April 2017.

A joint project by Piána na ulici (Pianos on the Street), the Czech Centre London and The Poetry Society, The Poetry Periscope is part of the European Literature Festival, organised by EUNIC London and initiated by the Czech Centre London.
