National Poetry Day – the UK’s biggest mass-participation celebration of poetry takes place in October each year and is a fantastic resource for poetry fans.  For 2022, the National Poetry Day theme is THE ENVIRONMENT. Poetry Archive has curated this superb collection of our recordings which take us on a grand tour of the environment and of the people, animals and problems that constitute it.

National Poetry Day was founded in 1994 by the Forward Arts Foundation.
