Larkin, Hull & 2017: a talk by Rosie Millard.

This event, which marked the 30th anniversary of Larkin’s death, took place at the University of Hull in the Brynmor Jones Library’s new exhibition hall and coincided with the opening of an exhibition of photographs taken by Larkin, ‘A Poet’s Lenses’.

Rosie Millard is Chair of Hull City of Culture 2017 and was the BBC News Arts Correspondent for 10 years and arts editor of the New Statesman. Rosie spoke eloquently about the significance of Philip Larkin in shaping the cultural events and activities planned for 2017.

Most of the 90 or so people who attended took the opportunity to take a tour of the re-developed Library, including a visit to the Librarian’s office where some of the items relating to Larkin’s period as Librarian have been retained.
