‘Scotland’ in London

April 21, 2011

Robert Crawford's 'Scotland', part of the Festival of Britain at the Southbank Centre. Thanks to Bea for sending us the snap!

We were delighted to receive this snap from Southbank Centre’s Bea, of Robert Crawford’s poem ‘Scotland’, one of a series of poems being exhibited at the heart of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Britain celebrations!

A series of ‘lands’ have been created in the centre, by artists and designers which honour the heritage and themes of the original 1951 festival. Launching next weekend, there will be celebrations each weekend – from the Meltdown Festival and the London Literature Festival to Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage Festival. Southbank will be peppering the site with poetry, weaving it into the fabric of the festival, ensuring that poetry from across the UK and beyond is celebrated.

You can find out more about the Festival of Britain 2011 on the Southbank Centre website, and we’d recommend catching them on Twitter for up to the minute pics, gossip, giveaways and more.
